Interview with Lucy Bartholomew

An Interview with Lucy Bartholomew - I will always remember my first 100km at 15years old with my Dad along the Victorian Coastline. It was super special to share these footsteps and moments with him and to achieve something that a lot of people said wasn’t achievable.

Interview with Dean Karnazes – ‘Running, Nutrition and Adventures’

For many runners (and non-runners), Dean Karnazes needs no introduction. If you are new to running or not familiar with the ultra-running world, or Dean’s books, then watching this video will be a great introduction to a man who has been named by TIME magazine as one of the ‘top 100 most influential people in the world’.

Runner Interview: Jacky Hunt-Broersma – ‘A Truly Inspirational Runner’

Jacky Hunt-Broersma - 'A Truly Inspirational Runner' - I now run to inspire others to get fit and healthy, especially other amputees, as I am living proof that life goes on after cancer and amputation.

Runner Interview: Magdalena Mittersteiner – ‘Living the Mountain Life’

Living the Mountain Life - The mountains decide if you are climbing, running or even walking. So, going into the mountains is a combination of all these kinds of movements and that is what I love. It makes you feel alive and free.

Runner Interview: Josephine Anselin – ‘Running Across Scotland’

Read all about Josephine Anselin's 'micro-adventure', running across Scotland! Plus great tips for planning your own adventure and recommendations for some great running books to read, to get you even more inspired.

Interview with Hilary Matheson – Trail Runner & Photographer

Interview with Hilary Matheson - I know many new runners these days want to jump right in and run a hundred miler, but I also see a lot of new runners burning themselves out by signing up for every race they can get their hands on, instead of focusing on building a solid base first.

Interview with Meg Lewis-Schneider – Speedy Road Runner

Interview with Meg Lewis-Schneider - My approach to training is “train don’t strain”. Listen to your body and don’t get greedy and take more than it’s willing to give. I do this by balancing hard workouts with quality, recovery/easy runs.

Interview: Adell Bridges – Travelling Yoga Teacher

Interview with Adell Bridges - "I always like to remember that 'nothing is permanent'. So, you can apply this when you're in a pleasant situation, remembering to take it in and be grateful for it, because it won't be around forever. Or when you're in a challenging situation, to remember that this too shall pass!"

Runner Interview: Shaylee Hurst

Interview with Shaylee Hurst - I wanted to know how to react when I came across all types of animals and wildlife, as well as basic first aid. Also, make sure you're diligent about protecting your skin with SPF while you're exploring!

Runner Interview: Anna Frost

Interview with Anna Frost - There are so many wonderful role models of strong, happy, successful women lining up and dominating at all of the major events. They last more than a few races, we see them consistently perform at a high level because they have healthy eating habits.

Runner Interview: Hailey Van Dyk

Interview with Hailey Van Dyk - There is something about the challenge of getting up each day and forcing yourself to run through the accumulated soreness. I also really love getting to go to sleep each night so that you don't miss any of the sights by running through the night.

Runner Interview: Dani Moreno – Team USA

Interview with Dani Moreno - To secure a place on Team USA, I basically just had to have a great racing resume, which meant I had to race well consistently! It took a lot of work over the last year and I felt honored to be selected to the team still being very new to the sport.

Runner Interview: Peter Billard (@catchingthestride)

Interview with Peter Billard - I intend to be still running long after most others have retired to the couch. Doing good so far!

Runner Interview: Anna Mae Flynn – Hoka One One Elite Athlete (@annamaeflynn)

Interview with Anna Mae Flynn - Don't be too competitive with anyone or yourself. Always have a good time, and when it is time to work hard your body will know. I don’t really focus on the stats, but more about what I want to do that day.

Runner Interview: Hollie Holden (@holholden)

Interview with Hollie Holden - My ideal race is running anywhere new, I love traveling & exploring the world - if I can do it using just my own 2 feet, even better!

Runner Interview: Trail & Kale Runner Interview with Sarah Williams, founder of Tough Girl Challenges

Transvulcania 2017 – Race Interview with James Scott

The location is stunning, La Palma is the lesser-known island in the Canaries but so beautiful. The course itself is very hard, especially for a normal guy like me.

Runner Interview: Florens von der Decken (@floruns)

Runner Interview: Florens von der Decken - It’s no shame at all to walk the steeper climbs from time to time. It’s actually quite clever and you can soak in the beauty of nature...

Runner Interview: Charlotte Martin (@mtn.charlotte)

But above all, have lots of fun running, realise how life and the land are beautiful and how fortunate you are to be able to use your lungs and your two legs to cross the landscapes!

Runner Interview: Margaret Spring (@runner4cake)

It’s a gift to run outside in nature. Take every step, breath of fresh air, and view in! OHHHHHH and bring snacks, pick an EPIC view, and picnic it up!!!

Runner Interview: Elisabeth Borgersen (@elisbo)

Runner Interview: Elisabeth Borgersen - Consistency is the key to development, especially for the long distances. Listen to your body and enjoy the nature when being out.

Runner Interview: Malory Peterson (@malorykaye.run.fly)

Training is a lifestyle, not a means to an end. I don’t follow any plans, I don’t use a GPS watch, and I don’t track my stats. In training I follow a basic guideline: stay dynamic.

Runner Interview: Sami Vaskola (@masterdreamer)

Take your time, pace, enjoy, rest, remember your nutrition and keeping your salt as well as your body's optimal level.

Runner Interview: Steph Harrap (@anygivenrunday)

Runner Interview: Steph Harrap - I think a plan is one of the most important tools to have as a runner…if you fail to plan you plan to fail, right?!

Runner Interview: Cat Ogle (@cat_stadie)

Every boom of thunder and flash of lightning almost had me hitting the ground (in fear honestly). I have NEVER ran so hard in my entire life.

Runner Interview: Sawna Guadarrama (@sawna)

Be present in the moment, because everything is temporary- moments, feelings, experiences, even trails are constantly changing. ENJOY THEM!

Runner Interview: Holin Wilbanks (@holins_trail_hustle)

Be prepared and be ready for an adventure… and have a little extra time on your hands when you head out with me.

Runner Interview: Morgan Hope Sjogren (@running_bum_)

"The other big adventure was running up a 14er with Jenn Shelton, drinking too much beer and then booking a trip to Chamonix...."

Runner Interview: Ross Spalding (@ross.spalding)

After a race I love that rather than asking 'how did you place' or 'what was your time' fell running is often more: "how did you find the route and did you have some fun?".

Runner Interview: Belen Andreus (@pocoybien)

"Run to have fun, run to feel good, run without being dependent on a stopwatch, run without suffering, run the distance that you desire in every moment..."

Runner Interview: Jenny Tough (@jennytough)

In September I ran solo across Kyrgyzstan. It was a distance of about 950km, carrying all of my 12kg of equipment in a backpack. I aimed to use ancient nomad trails to cross the Tien Shan mountains on a route that had never before been run, relying on yurt-dwelling nomads for assistance in the wild.
