S4 Eps 2 Young Hearts, Run Free - Robbie Britton 1001 Running Tips - 15 October 2021

Young Hearts, Run Free

We said Season 4 was going to be a belter, we better start upping our game then! We're moving on from the excitement of big city marathon's, almost, and heading back up into the high ground to catch up with this weeks guest, Italian Alps based Robbie Britton.  Robbie will need no introduction to many of you. For some of you he will, a geezer from South London who found an extraordinary talent for ultra-running. A fella who's repped GB multiple times, competed in an array of blue ribband races across the globe and recently been forced to adapt to cycling whilst continuing his uber successful run coaching. Robbie though is back, and back with a bang hot off a win in his first race in over 2 years. And he's excited to update us all! Not only that he's found time to pen a book, yip an author now too, with his '1001 Running Tips' due to be published on 15 November (see link at bottom of show notes) Now don't be mistaken, the book is touched on a little, but this is a gem of an episode full of golden nuggets. Be careful though, Robbie's enthusiasm is infectious, it'll be tricky not to get caught in it! Robbie's book is available to pre-order from Vertebrate Publishing now using the following link - https://www.v-publishing.co.uk/books/running/1-1-running-tips/?utm_source=Young%20Hearts%20Pocast&utm_medium=Podcast&utm_campaign=1001%20Running%20Tips%20-%20Robbie%20Britton&tab=1 Photo credit Natalie White

Episode 163 - Robbie Britton 2021

Dirt Church Radio

Eugene and Matt have the distinct pleasure of welcoming Robbie Britton back to Dirt Church Radio. Robbie first guested on episode 99 when we talked about representing Great Britain at the world 24 hour champs, being a coach, his master’s degree in science, and his absolute love of adventure. Robbie has now added the title “author” to his repertoire, with the imminent release of his book 1001 Running Tips - The Essential Runner’s Guide. Robbie is fresh from his first ultra distance running event in two years, full of a cold, and in excellent form. This is an engaging and energetic conversation which covers the evolution of coaching knowledge, athletic life in the new normal, the importance of academic rigour and also why you should keep your scabby paws out of the communal nuts at the aid station, ya filthy animals.  Enjoy!

Ultra Adventures with Robbie Britton


Robbie Britton has some incredible achievements under his belt, with highlights such as a 2:29 marathon and a 261km 24hr best, which earned a World & European bronze medal. However, it is his adventures in search of fastest known times (FKTs) that intrigue me the most. Whether it's crossing Iceland, completing the Kom-Emine in Bulgaria, setting an FKT on the 650km Jordan Trail (all on foot or 1100km on a bicycle), the next adventure is never far away. As one of the world’s leading ultra-distance coaches, I wanted to get a better understanding of what it takes to get through adventure races, the mental tactics needed for ultra distances and what he has learned from his fell running wife and the wide array of books he reads. www.robbiebritton.co.ukRobbie's Fast Run articlesRobbie on TwitterRobbie on Instagram Robbie on LinkedInThis episode was sponsored by Precision HydrationEnter the code TRIBEATHLON15 at the checkout to get 15% off your first order of electrolytes.Use the code PODCAST15 for 15% off the on-demand  Science of Endurance Hydration course with TrainingPeaks University. Book a free 1-2-1 Sweat Expert Call here Nailing your nutrition strategy for endurance performance video

Episode 99 - Robbie Britton

Dirt Church Radio

Kia Ora Whanau. Joining us this week from the mountains of Italy is Robbie Britton. Robbie loves pushing himself, from constantly running around playing sport as a child, to completing master’s degrees, to coming third at the world 24 hour champs in 2015 and helping his GB team take the gold. Robbie, whose run at Turin clocks in as a DCR first at being two guest’s Greatest Run Ever, radiates enthusiasm and good cheer as he discusses his love of finishing races fast, how he kept the boredom of injury away by signing up for 1000km cycle races, and how he’s coped switching from being an athlete that does a bit of coaching, to a coach who does a bit of athlet’ing. We take a pause to consider Majell Backhausen carrying Robbie’s frozen form across Lake Baikal, and whether Majell looked down at Robbie in a comforting and beatific manner (SPOILER* He TOTALLY would have), as well as Robbie’s FKT in Jordan with the least stoked crew member ever.  We also discuss Yiannos Kurous’es bananna regime, Eugene outs Matt’s bizarre animal phobia, Greatest Run Ever, Stuff You Should Know, and whole lot of excitement  about next week’s 100th episode live show. Enjoy
