In July, a group of passionate runners formed an organisation with the aim of increasing inclusion, participation and representation of black people in trail running.  That group called itself Black Trail Runners.

In this episode we chat to 2 of those runners, namely ‘Marathon Marcus’ Brown and Sonny Peart about their own passion for running and outdoor sports, their experiences on the trails, and about what can be done to tackle a lack of diversity that leaves many people missing out on the physical and mental benefits gained from running and other outdoor sports.
