Ep118 - Reece Edwards - UTA 100km Champion and 2:13 Marathon Guy

Ep118 - Reece Edwards - UTA 100km Champion and 2:13 Marathon Guy

December 2, 2022

Reece Edwards is a machine! His string of races over the last 2 months are nothing short of exceptional. 

Sydney Marathon in 2:17

Melbourne Marathon 3rd place in 2:14

UTA 100km 1st in 8:10

He's also about to tackle the Ultratrail Kosciuszko 100miler in a couple of weeks and you'd be mad to bet against him for the win!

This week Haddy gets the chance to discuss Reece's late start and sharp rise in the running world. From early struggles in Dick Telford's group to a 2:13 Marathon in Rotterdam, Reece is a fast learner!

We get some valuable training tips from Dick's coaching and some great insight into Reece's 'reckless' racing philosophy. Reece's transformation into one of Australia's (and potentially the World's) premier trail runners is the well worth the price of admission. 

Get on board the Reece Edwards train!

Enjoy!

Ep117 - Mike Duggan - Trail Running at the 2032 Brisbane Games

November 4, 2022

Who would like to see trail running at the Olympics?

This week we have the pleasure of chatting with the man behind the push to see trail running at the 2032 Brisbane Games, Mike Duggan. Mike is President of the Trail Running Association of QLD (TRAQ) and if anyone can get us to the Games it's Mike. His passion for trail running, his work ethic and attitude to business are the perfect combination to get it across the line.

Mike's trail running resume is extensive with tilts at UTMB and Western States the highlights and he has some top tips to stare from his running experience and his cross-over with the corporate world.

We get stuck into what trail running might look like at the games and how the running community can get in behind such an exciting prospect.

Ep116 - Brett Robinson - Dual Olympian and Aussie Half Marathon Record Holder

Ep116 - Brett Robinson - Dual Olympian and Aussie Half Marathon Record Holder

September 15, 2022

This week Haddy checks in with the incredible Brett Robinson as he prepares for the upcoming London Marathon.

Brett holds Australia’s fastest Half Marathon title, and he’s the only Australian to break the 60-minute barrier, with his record of 59:57. Since emerging through the junior ranks as a top 1500m runner, Brett has developed into a world-class senior athlete, seeing him make finals appearances in the 5000m at both the 2013 World Championships and 2016 Rio Olympics. In recent years, he has shifted focus to the Marathon,  with a current personal best of 2:10:55 and another Aussie Olympic Jersey at the Tokyo Games.

Brett was a big part of the Ineos 1:59 run, taking the wind for the legendary Eluid Kipchoge and is the current Melbourne Marathon Champion.

Brett has been coached by the greats of Aussie distance running, Philo Saunders and Nic Bideau, but is also coaching a group of athletes for Pulse Running so his depth of knowledge is outstanding. We discuss all aspects of training and racing, from nutrition, psychology and pacing to how hard to hit the after party circuit!

We also chat about Brett's role as an ambassador for the Blackmore's Running Festival and it's tilt at the World Marathon Majors plus his desire to get muddy at next year's World Cross Country in Bathurst.

Its not often you get to chat with people who have done 300 marathons, in fact, there’s only 8 in Australia! We catch up with Bob just two weeks out from completing his 300th which will be run at the Sydney Blackmores Marathon.

Bob’s been averaging 5-10 marathons a year since the 80’s, he shares some great stories including the Sydney to Melbourne Ultramarathon which he knocked over in 8 days averaging over 100km a day.

He chats about his race streaks, Canberra Marathon plus 30, City 2 Surf plus 40, Six Foot Track Marathon, 30 (not counting the one he missed the cut off by 4 seconds).

Ep113 - Eloise Wellings - Step Up To The Marathon

Ep113 - Eloise Wellings - Step Up To The Marathon

August 26, 2022

Eloise Wellings is one of the true legends of Aussie distance running. We catch her as she returns from a record 5th Commonwealth Games where she ran an impressive 4th in the marathon.

Since we last spoke with Elzy (Ep16) a lot has changed. Apart from the pandemic palava, she has added Sonny to the Wellings tribe and stepped up from gun 5/10km athlete to one of Australia's best marathon runners. From a London debut of 2:29 to smashing Nagoya in 2:25 less than 6 months later, the sky's the limit for Elzy.

We also chat about her role as an ambassador for the Blackmores Running Festival, it's push to become the next official World Major on the marathon circuit and what Aussie runners and supporters can do to help make this happen. 

Elzy's perspective on life and running is incredibly inspiring and the practical advice that she shares is so valuable.

He also lets us know about the serious A-list runners heading out for this years race. It's gonna be fast!
