Radio 4 Extra, or Radio 4 depending on whats on.

The voices... Always the same...

Never listen to music whilst running but find it strange that during the Great North Run they have the "Nike boost zone" with speakers blaring out areobics type music for about 400 metres. Everyone gets a boost then slow down at the end of the zone!

It's because they want to get away from the racket as quickly as possible.

I listen to traffic.

It's a way of avoiding death by Transit.

Marathon Talk, Audiobooks, and lots of downloaded radio comedies / drama. I find it easy to hear around me with speech radio. Music tends to drown everything out for r

depeds on my mood, sometimes i run with nothing, sometimes with comedy podcasts, or music, i often check my own mix's when out running before i put them out for general download.

Like Muttley, I listen to the world around me. The kites don't hang around long enough - the buzzards and ravens chase them off. Occasionally, I run to the sound of posh people shooting pheasants.

last night i ran an extra 3 miles because I got engrossed in a novel and wanted to find out what happened next

AC/DC, GNR, Aerosmith, Motorhead!!!!

Pod on shuffle, but varied range, including NIN, AC/DC, 70's disco anthems (!), Seasick Steve, Placebo, Hole, Joy Division, Neil Young  , anything but (c)rap !

Marathon Talk and IMTalk (New Zealand) are always good podcasts for a bit of company on a run. You can tune in and out as it suits, they come out every week, produced to a high standard and provide knowledge and entertainment in equal measures (and they are free).

Tried podcasts. Can't do it. I run without headphones at night when I need to be acutely aware of cars etc., but during the day in the park I like music. Techno, hip hop and rock all work

yeah hiphop is good.

WIthin Tempatation, Nightwish, Delain, Ayreon and hopefully in the next week or so Fairyland.

Wow Grendel - I thought I was the only one who ran to symphonic metal! 

Nightwish got me through training for last year's VLM - I will be forever grateful

"In The House In A Heartbeat". Best Night time Running track ever. It's the piece featured heavily in the Film 28 Days Later and recently I heard it featured briefly in a Strongbow ad. Creepy and Atmospheric and cool.

I also have "Gonna Fly Now" from Rocky on my Ipod for a laugh. Great for climbing a hill to!!

Shall have to look that one up DB - er not the Rocky track I may add

I hate to admit there is a big hill that over looks the Town, I use it for training quite a lot, when nobody is around I have been known to get to the top, do a bit of Shadow Boxing, put my arms in the air like a true Champion and roar like a wounded Lion ala Rocky Balboa.

I saw a Travel Channel programme about the Steps that Rocky runs up in Philadelphia. Apparently people go there to re-enact the scene. I wondered, looking at some of them, whether they had a crash team on permanent standby

I think the steps are part of the Art Museum?!

I do listen to normal stuff as well, generally loud and Guitar lead stuff does the job. I'm not into "Club Music" - it's just annoying, or Hip Hop or R and B, it's normally just people moaning and groaning about their genitalia. Apart from that I'm easy.
