The Arts of Running

I’ve just caught up with the excellent Radio 3 Free Thinking programme on the Arts of Running from earlier this month.

 

The 45 minutes discussion touches upon a huge range of fascinating topics about running: why we run, empowerment, marginalisation, punishment, enjoyment, barefoot, treadmills, art, intellectualism and self-quantification to name but a few. It’s a superb example of the ways in which social, cultural and humanities researchers (like myself) are approaching running and the questions we ask about it.

The programme also features a range of colleagues and friends who may be familiar with long-term jographies readers:

They are all excellent thinkers and speakers, so it is well worth a listen if you haven’t heard it already.
