Podcast Episode 2: Dave Funnell

In this episode I chat with Dave Funnell. Dave describes himself as a middle-aged runner who started running by chance when a friend dragged him along for a Parkrun at the age of 48. Since then Dave has had running adventures spanning from local Parkruns to far off places such as Chamonix.

In this interview we get to know a bit more about Dave and he gives us detailed outlines of his most memorable running adventures, including Skyrun, 9 Freedom Day Parkruns, Comrades, Two Oceans Ultra, Ultra-Trail Cape Town, Mac Mac 100 Miler, Death Valley Marathon, Grand Canyon R2R, CCC at UTMB, TDS at UTMB.
