September 24, 2022

Howdie folks, yes it's me the creator of Wild Ginger Running and nope I have not always loved running! We were introduced at school and it kinda ruined it for me as you will find out in this podcast. Then Nik asks me lots of questions about how I got to be editing Trail Running magazine 2010-2017, setting up Wild Ginger Running YouTube channel and podcast and writing my book, the Ultimate Trail Running Handbook, plus my 3 top tips for running motivation. Enjoy! Claire

How to train for 100 miles (with summer Spine Challenger course record breaker & coach Tim Pigott)

How to train for 100 miles (with summer Spine Challenger course record breaker & coach Tim Pigott)

July 13, 2022

How to train for 100 miles with summer Spine Challenger course record holder 2022 (it's actually 112 miles!) and endurance coach Tim Pigott from HP3 coaching who 12 years ago was on life support after a car crash. Incredible achievement either way, but with so many surgeries and rehab to get back in the game, this really is an awesome feat.
