The Inside Running Podcast

Inside Running Podcast

Widely considered Australia's greatest running podcast (we quite agree), the Inside Running Podcast is by three fast runners, for all runners. The hosts, Brady Threlfall, Julian Spence and Bradley Croker, are fantastic runners in their own right, with 2:19, 2:14 and 2:17 marathons under their belt. Here you will find up-to-date distance running news, training advice, reviews of running gear, an array of incredible guests and coverage of races—all in a chilled, easy to listen to format.

Disclosure: We are Aussies too, so in support of these fellas, we sponsored a couple of episodes.
