I've been listening to Marathon Talk for a while now and have just started listening to Talk Ultra as well. Really great to listen to on runs.

Trouble is, as I'm upping the mileage, I need more! Any recommendations for other running podcasts? I could listen to other stuff while running of course, but I find if I'm actually listening to ones about running it's very inspiring and informative on nutrition, training tips etc.

I tried one called  The Marathon Show   yesterday but the American blokes voice (not accent) was so annoying I had to stop. Maybe you can bear it more than I can.

There is the parkrun show. If you've fallen to the addiction of Saturday morning parkruns yet then the show is a lighthearted review of the weekend's stats and stories across the parkrun world. I think it was born out of Marathon Talk, like their little brother.

Zen and the Art of Triathalon is always interesting

Im another marathon show listener. I've tried several in the past (runners Round table, marathon show etc) but none are as good as marathon talk in my opinion.

IM Talk is a great show.

Ultrarunner and Trail Runner Nation are good.  They are US shows, but lots of good interviews and training tips.

One I quite like is a guy called Ben Greenfield at

He's a serious competitve triathlete (some sort of American champion - perhaps in his age group) and talks about a whole range of stuff: running, nutrition, gym routines, lifestyle, you name it. Yep, there is the usual U.S. slickness but it's not exessive and the guy is genuinely knowledgeable. He has a particular take on nutrition which is always interesting even if I don't agree with all of it.

Worth a listen though. Length is usally around an hour to 90 minutes so good for a gym session.
