Feature more park runners!

I listen to this podcast every week and the more enjoyable episodes are definitely those that interview the grassroots of parkrun eg the run directors like Olwyn, the people who have hit milestones. The ultra runners and elite athletes who use Parkrun as their tempo run not so much. Louise is a Parkrun tourist, give her a microphone and get her to interview the people at the parkruns she goes to every Saturday: the different volunteers, the normal people like the rest of us who we can relate to!

The right length for a 5km easy run and listen

This is an entertaining and knowledgeable podcast about parkrun. Keeping it under 30 means that you can still listen to it on an easy 5km run. I love Louise’s enthusiasm and knowledge on parkrun. I like the professionalism brought by Vassos and producer Patrick.The only one downside is the feature when we hear which parkrun Vassos has not run each week....this is a podcast about parkrun so would like to hear about parkrun experiences not unattended events. Other than that a really enjoyable listen!

Got me to parkrun!

Having recently completed couch to 5k, I had been thinking about going to parkrun, registered and downloaded my barcode... but then didn’t get up the nerve to go. Parkrun sent me that email - trying to persuade me to attend my first one. At the bottom was a link to your podcast, and as Vassos makes me laugh every morning on radio 2, I thought I’d give it a go. By the time I’d listened to 3 episodes of the podcast, I realised there was nothing to be scared of, I would be welcomed, and it didn’t matter if I walked some of it. So off I went, and loved it. So now I listen to the podcast while I’m running parkrun. :) fun and informative, and keeps me going. Can’t be many people who listened to the parkrun podcast before they’d even been to parkrun!

Great podcast for all the parkrun community

Really enjoy listening in to the chat on this show; very entertaining. It’s motivating me to get started at my local parkrun, which wasn’t around when I was able to run years ago.Keep up the great work!
