Rob Deering

Broadcaster, comedian, musician and writer Rob Deering found running in 2008 when he was just slightly beyond his mid-30s. Since then he’s run twenty marathons, and recorded nearly four hundred episodes of the Running Commentary podcast which he and fellow running comic Paul Tonkinson record every week, shooting the breeze while they run.
Combining celebrity editions of TV quizzes, fundraising comedy gigs and the aforementioned marathons, Rob has raised over £150,000 for Parkinson’s UK. His Dad Barney, who died in 2019, had Parkinson’s.
Rob donates half of the profits from his book Running Tracks – stories of running listening to fantastic music in an array of interesting and beautiful places – to the charity, and hosts and DJs Rob Deering’s Running Tracks Radio Hour on Spotify – again whilst running.
He took part in his first Ultra Marathon – Threshold’s Race To The Stones – in July 2022.
