Three episodes in one month and ANOTHER amazing guest? You're damn right.
Ben Smith took on an extraordinary challenge back in 2015, and is gearing up to do another. Find out all about how he got on, how injured he got, and how stopping took its toll.
As ever, we skirt around the edges of running by talking about socks, tea, dogs and moving your injury around rather than fixing it.

We tracked him down and somehow made him agree to talk to us, and he was lovely. Phew.
We also talk a fair bit about equality and Amy says 'intersectionality' a few times, well she is a doctor after all. There's a lot of actual bullshit going on in the world at the moment, and we address it where we can but we're not the experts you need and urge you to find out more about race issues, LGB issues, trans issues, and all the other groups currently under attack.

Our guest is a former editor of RunnersWorld.com and the founder of Dumb Runner, Mark Remy, and we get a great insight into the other side of running journalism and why some of those bizarre articles need to exist.
We also discuss running early, the ideal time to poo, massive ankles, why you hate cross training, and we have another running confession.

The only thing worse than running is not running, right? In this episode we delve in the murky world of cross-training, and why pretty much all of it is bullshit.
Speaking of not running, we both share non-running related injury stories and Amy continues her bid to become an inspirational speaker.

While we're still allowed to run, we'll still complain about it. We read out your running confessions, and will happily keep taking them on an ongoing basis because we know you're all terrible running sinners, and we can forgive you.
We explain why you won't be seeing a BS face mask, get the lowdown on the Ross Barkley 5k, and tell fat-shaming advertisers to fuck the fuck off.
Features an appearance from everyone's favourite corgi.

Providing a mild distraction from your lockdown, Running is BS delves into the bizarre world of the garden marathon, running up Everest in your house and other weird things desperate runners are doing to stay occupied and get their distance in.
Has Amy been running? You may be pleasantly surprised. And Stu urges you to stop running up and down the same parks, canal paths, and streets and go and do a bit of exploring!
Our guest this week is Gareth Allen, an ultra runner who live streamed his garden marathon to a worldwide audience!

What do you do when there's no running to talk about? Talk about yourself! Thanks to all our listeners who sent in questions for us, we had a great time going through them and offering our complete lack of expertise as answers.
We manage to squeeze in a bit of bullshit running news, and have now both adopted the Genders Studio™ method which is effective but doesn't half make your head a bit hot.

A last minute stand in for Amy sees SBC rock the mic with Stewart for this episode full of all kinds of running bullshit.
There's sweary banter galore with chafing, race cancellations, filthy puns, and making noises at gross out comments.
We have bonus double guestage with London Marathon pacer Liz Ayres giving us a rundown of the changes being made to this year's race and Howard Owen's review of his, understandably, slowest ever marathon in Siberia.
