World Road Running Championships - Riga 2023

Welcome back to TBR. Ahead of the inaugural road running champs this coming weekend in Riga, Latvia we sat down with one of the team helping to bring it together. Alfreds Alpinis.  As part of the communications and marketing team, he is well placed to shed some light on the story they are aiming to tell for this very first staging of a world road champs. In this conversation we touch on his own running, how the event came to be, the scale of logistics involved and run through the elite fields who will be competing over the half marathon, 5k and Mile. With multiple record holders in the field and newly ratified records expected to fall. It’s going to be an amazing day of competition. Find out more via @wariga23 --- Send in a voice message:

Running is big. Elite athletes, records, technology, cutting edge gear. But it’s big for the people who lace up, head out and grab some miles. Day in, Day out. Whether it’s making it around the block, your first mile unbroken, feeling part of a community, clearer in your head or breaking what’s physically possible. Every Run is The Big Run. Join Danny on The Big Run podcast as he chats to friends, athletes, entrepreneurs, innovators, psychologists, creatives and many more in the world of running, movement and beyond.
