Episode notes

Super excited this week to bring you a chat I had with Richard McDowell, AKA the turbo ferret.

Richard lives in South West London where this podcast was recorded, and in recent years he’s made a bit of a name for himself by laying down some incredibly fast times at a number of Centurion ultramarathon, including the South Downs Way 50 and 100, the Thames Path 100, where he ran the fastest ever trail 100-miler on British soil.

It’s safe to say that Richard is the fastest runner I’ve spoken to on the podcast so far and quite possibly ever well, he’s got an amazing road and cross country background, so it was really interesting to get his perspective on the trail and ultra scene given his previous focus on marathons, 10ks, and other quote unquote ‘short’ distances.
