Thank you to the classic British running clothing company, Iffley Road, for supporting this week’s show. Their founder, Bill Byrne, joins us to talk about his love of running and the heritage of the brand.

The Olympic Games are here, and we look back at some of the dramas, tears, performances, and stories from events that have excited, inspired, and intrigued.

And Martin speaks to Jerry Lockspeiser, author of Running Stories, a book supporting the brilliant Running Charity, and filled with stories of people struggling with self-doubt who put one foot forward and never look back.
