I, like many others living in the relative safety of big cities, have felt a bit useless these past days and months as people and animals and sacred country around Australia have burnt. Without knowing how else to help, I figured I’d pledge a dollar for every km I run this week to supporting our firefighters and relief efforts. I’ll be making my donation to the @redcrossau . I’m hoping I can get some of my running family to maybe do the same 🙏 #kms4bushfires

I am so thankful to my partner in this initiative, @niccyboy & his team at @bushycreative for working (pro bono) throughout the weekend to pull this together.

Listener question of the week doubles as Moose on the Shoes about how often the boys put on their trail shoes and the technical details about what makes up a trail shoe.
Jarryd Clifford returns from a successful campaign at the World Parathletic Championships in Dubai, joining Brady to talk about what his visual impairment is and how the classification system works as well as his various training camps in Flagstaff and Barcelona.
They talk about the different experiences of racing on the track and cross country, how the Victorian XCR season played a role in the lead up to Dubai while Jarryd dealt with putting pressure and expectations on himself.
Jarryd throughout emphasises the team behind him that brought him to success, especially the role that his friend Tim Logan played in training and racing with a tether, how para-athletics is growing each year in the public consciousness and gives his take on the general state of athletics, how planning for Tokyo and the year ahead presents challenges.
