Running the Show

In this brand-new series from Lucozade Sport, best friends (according to Sam) and novice runners Dev Griffin and Sam Thompson, are going to learn what it takes, with the help of trainers, nutritionists and mindfulness gurus, to become lean mean jogging machines.

Due to recent updates surrounding the coronavirus, the series has been paused at the halfway point, but Dev and Sam will be back in the autumn. In the meantime, they will be continuing their running training, and encourage listeners to stay active, stay healthy and to look out for each other.

Have a listen to the first 6 episodes now to hear all the ups, downs, tears and tantrums as they embark upon on their journey.


In this episode Dev and Sam head to Battersea Sports Centre to meet a very special guest, England netball captain, Serena Guthrie. They chat with her about her marathon training, the Netball World Cup and her love of music. She opens up to them about being diagnosed with Glandular Fever in the run up to the tournament, never skipping the songs she doesn’t like on a running playlist, and the mental benefits of running. She also challenges them to a BPM Beep Test (like a beep test but set to a beat!) Find out whether it was Dev or Sam that came out on top… With the loser having to do a gruelling forfeit.
