This is, incredibly, the 40th episode of Running Tales.

The podcast, originally meant to capture people's running experiences - where possible - at running events or parkrun or at least on a face to face basis, has lived most of its life during the coronavirus pandemic.

With a second lockdown upon us and Christmas round the corner, we've decided to take a break.

In the meantime, please check out all our previous episodes on Apple, Spotify, Podbean and all good podcast providers.

Thanks for your support.
