For this episode, Dan and James record a telephone conversation with Damian Hall. Damian is a National Treasure of British Ultrarunning, with a list of accolades longer than we could possibly type here. The trio chat about his recent attempt at the Pennine Way Record (again), Dan’s 48hr, Green Runners, Tiny prison phones and Monkey Pox.
Mark won the Arc of Attrition 100 in a massive course record last weekend. He also has course record’s at Lakeland 100 and NDW100 amongst others. Dan and James catch up about this years Arc and then ask Mark what the recipe for the Secret Sauce is…..
Dan and James catch up after another huge break. 24 hour races and Dan And James’ upcoming events get some air time. The sound is still pretty bad but we have the great Steve Ashworth ready to help us now. Funky town.
Dan and James discuss the Centurion Running Track 100 where Aleksandr Sorokin ran a new World Best for 100 miles in 11:14 before going on to the 12 hour world record in addition. And where Samantha Amend finally cracked the British Female all time 100 mile best with a 14:34…. alongside many other sensational performances to boot. The two also look ahead to the Thames Path 100 this weekend coming, where Dan is lacing up his racing flats to compete.
