Feb 19, 2021 Episode 254

Laz is back and this time he's talking Big's Backyard and virtual races... something we didn't think we'd be speaking with Laz about a year ago!

It's been a while since Jody and David spoke to Laz (aka Gary Cantrell) about the Barkley Marathons (if you've not listened, we suggest going back and listening to this first) and since then we'd had the National Running Show where Laz was star of the show and a global pandemic.

As a result, Laz's usual roster of races hasn't gone ahead... but that has helped explode the popularity of the Big's Backyard race format and another huge virtual race run by Laz - The Great Virtual Race Across Tennessee. Jody and David discuss these with Laz.

Laz also gives his view on the controversy surrounding the banning of BLM and political posts in the Facebook group.

Oh, and a bit of a disclaimer - there was a bad lag which made it difficult for the conversation to flow as freely as intended.

Enjoy!
