Speaker

David Hellard presents the Bad Boy Running podcast and is organiser of Beer Belly Running races, including the Great British Beerathon. He’s as known for his stupid running challenges, including leading the London Marathon for 400 meters, setting the record for the Under Round Marathon and representing England in the Beer Mile as his more serious running feats. He loves racing marathons across the globe from winning in Somaliland to craping behind a rock while protected by gunmen in Afghanistan and began his ultra-journey by finishing first Brit in the Marathon des Sables in 2016.
