About Us

Welcome to RunPod, the weekly run club you can join simply by listening. In this series Jenni Falconer welcomes special guests who share that passion for running. Together they’ll discuss the challenge, reward and sometimes obsession of pounding the pavement whilst asking what drives us to run, why some catch the bug more than others, and how it can transform the lives of those who do it. Along the way, you'll hear top training tips, monumental mistakes and some inspirational stories. So, whether you’re a seasoned marathoner, treadmill trainer, fitness guru or simply putting off that Sunday jog, RunPod is here for you.

Latest Episodes

Tony Audenshaw

Tony Audenshaw is best known for playing Emmerdale’s Bob Hope and it’s fair to say he loves running. In fact he’s loves running so much, he’s run more marathons than he’s had wives (in the show obviously) - and that’s a lot!!! This week he gets his RunPod Run Club membership and chats about why he loves getting out there in his trainers, rain or shine. We discuss fitting running in around your work schedule, an issue many of us have to deal with, and also give an insight into racing in fancy dress. Tony has run in costume multiple times and shares the joys and the challenges of doing so. It’s a great listen, and might even encourage you to sign up for a run dressed as a rhino... Enjoy and happy running! X

Suzanne Shaw

This week on RunPod, joining Jenni down the line is actress and singer and new runner Suzanne Shaw. It’s hard to believe that Suzanne only started running in 2020 and truly caught the running bug by changing the way she thought about exercise. She’s went from wondering whether she could run 5k to running 17k within a month and has really leapt trainer first into the sport. Suzanne talks about how running has helped her to know herself, the benefits that swapping to a plat-based lifestyle has given her, her desire to run a marathon - AND an ultra marathon and her mission to virtually run and cycle from John O’Groats to Lands End. A hugely inspiring and uplifting listen from someone who matches Jenni’s passion for running.

Ben Price, Colson Smith and Jack P Shepherd

This week we're initiating not one, not two, but three new members to the Runpod Run Club! From the cobbles of Coronation Street and their brilliant podcast 'Sofa Cinema Club' it's Ben Price, Colson Smith and Jack P Shepherd. The guys chat to Jenni about Colson's running journey- from running for just a few minutes to a weekly 26 miles, how running has helped Ben through lockdown and how he uses running as a kind of meditation and about the time when Jack signed up for the gym, went to the gym and cancelled his gym membership all in the same day. A very funny listen with three very different viewpoints!

Charlotte Purdue

This week on RunPod, Jenni is joined by one of Britain’s best long-distance runners, Charlotte Purdue. Charlotte is incredibly down to earth and so easy to chat to, she is also a truly fast runner. Her specialties are half-marathon and marathon distances and her sights are set on Tokyo 2020. In this episode we talk about her intense training schedule and what life is like for a professional runner. We also discuss speeds you have to hit on the treadmill if you’d like to match Charlotte when she runs, could you do it? It’s a brilliant, motivating listen with someone who is clearly passionate about running which will have the knock-on effect of motivating you to reach for your trainers and possibly even run a little further. What’s more it’s full of tips for us to improve our own running game. Enjoy. X

Katie Piper

Being initiated into the Runpod run club this week is author, presenter and fellow podcaster Katie Piper! Katie talks us through her running journey, how she ran away from unhealthy coping mechanisms (literally), building up to running a half marathon and finding a new love for it. Katie tells us how running has become almost a form of therapy for her, never failing to help her in unexpected ways, whether it’s improving her confidence or just giving her the space to work things out in her head. An incredibly worthwhile and inspiring listen, you’ll be reaching for your trainers after this, that’s for sure!

Ollie Ollerton

In this gathering of the RunPod Run Club, Jenni chats with someone who is former Special Forces and one of the stars of SAS: Who Dares Wins...Ollie Ollerton. Warning: You will absolutely be desperate to get out for a run after hearing this highly inspiring episode. Ollie very openly discusses a life-defining near-death experience at the age of just 10, resisting his ‘break point’ in the SAS selection process, as well as why running is so important to his mental health now. A fascinating listen, with a man who is one of the tough guys on the telly. But as you’ll see, he’s actually got a very nice side too that will definitely motivate you to get off the sofa!

A hugely inspiring listen. Happy running!
