Running is the one thing that we all like talking about. Every fortnight, we will be having a chat and a cuppa with an incredible woman from the world of running. From superstar pro runners to everyday plodders, each of them has made a big difference to running – and to women. We realised that there was a huge gap in the podcast world: a podcast that was about our favourite subject, that was about women, and was also long enough to keep us entertained on our longer runs. We don’t want to listen to blokes waffling on about quads and cadence (we can do that perfectly well ourselves, thank you very much). We want to listen to women who have made a proper difference in running, who have done some incredible running themselves, and who we can have a giggle with. Some you’ll know, and some you won’t – but they’re all utterly magnificent. We will talk to them about all the things that affect us when we step out the door: sexism, hormones, menopause, food, pelvic floors, relationships, mental health. But. BUT. We will also talk about races, PBs, shoes, training, starting running, enjoying running, finding the fun. And quads and cadence. This is the Women’s Running podcast, and it’s for women who love to run.
You’ll find every available episode of the podcast below, updated fortnightly. Or, if you want to listen during your run, you can find us on Spotify, Apple Podcasts and all the usual places. Just search for the Women’s Running podcast and you’ll find us!
Esther is the editor of Women’s Running. She loves talking about running, and listening to women who are equally passionate about running and all its benefits. She set up the Women’s Running podcast to fill the gap that she found wanting: a podcast that was long enough for a weekend long run, one that celebrated women who ran and who empower other women to run, and one that was informative, interesting and fun. A bit of a tall order! But one we think we’ve managed. She’s always on the look out for new people to interview, so do please get in touch with ideas so we can add them to the list.
