    Super shoe episode
    This episode had no actionable running material. Not sure who hosted this but they complained most of the show. There was no positive advice given. It’s been a while since listening but if these are the host moving forward, I’m out.

    A Peek Inside The Training Mindset of a 13:30 5k Runner
    My favorite episode on this show so far. Great job!

    Starting to sound like the “Let’s Run” message board in podcast form
    Finally had to unsubscribe. The flippant way in which Alberto Salazar was described as simply having “unscrupulous connections” in passing was the final, tone-deaf straw for me. The guy was banned from our sport for sexually assaulting an athlete. Not to mention all the doping. Get with the program.

    Great podcast!
    💗Love the episode with Brian Reynolds-double amputee💗

    Hit and miss…and miss
    If you want to know how to fit 12 minutes of advertisements into a 30 minute podcast - here you go. Also a very good chance the show is an audio recording of a YouTube presentation, or someone reading an article they wrote. The coaches clearly know what they’re talking about, but the presentation on this podcast is subpar, especially considering how long it’s been around.

    Going downhill
    I LOVED the older episodes of this podcast.. like binged hours of them on the run all summer long. Ever since Claire left, it’s been going downhill. A lot of regurgitated content in December and the new ones in January feel like whole episode paid advertisements for whatever product the interviewee is selling.

    The background dog barking
    Is making this podcast impossible to listen to.

    Too many sponsors…
    The majority of an episode was an add… I’m not here for the sponsors sorry but any info that was helpful in that episode was totally lost in my opinion
  • Dlisapat
    Repeats of old podcast material
    There’s been a lack of new content for the podcast. The new format appears to be a compilation of old podcasts pieced together under one topic. It’s very disappointing.

    SUCH A Great Resource!
    I love this podcast! I’m a Masters runner and have been helped so much by the episodes on injury prevention and great suggestions on training plan ideas. This podcast has been such a gift! Thank you!
  • haleymarie12
    LOVE this podcast!!
    so much info and easy to digest - this is a great podcast for any level of runner. I would love an episode (or two or three!!) about what to eat and when. I think there’s a few, but I’d love to have some more, maybe with specific foods and meals that runners love.
  • NicT_CO
    A must-listen for any runner!
    I’ve listened to a lot of running podcasts. Claire’s show is my absolute favorite and the only one I keep coming back to. Her approach resonates with me so much and guests are super knowledgeable.
  • mindytinkerbell

    Excellent Show
    I enjoy listening to Run To The Top because it gives me the information and tips I need to help me become a better runner. I even listen to it while running or riding my bike. Overall it is entertaining and Claire seems like able.
  • reluctant buckeye
    Great podcast
    Claire is a network radio level host. Curious, engaging, passionate about her sport, her listeners. Interviews always engaging. I learn something new every time I listen.
  • aprilceleste
    Great for runners from beginners to advanced!
    I’ve been listening to this podcast for years. I love it’s wide range of topics and guests. I love to listen to it on a solo run—-it’s like I’m on a run with friends! I’ve been running for over 20 years and am pretty good at it, but still am able to learn new things each week to help improve my running.
  • kath in co

    Balanced, Supportive, Achievable
    I listen to a lot of running, fitness and triathlon oriented Podcasts. Run to the Top is always on my MUST LISTEN list. They have the right topics at the right time (it seems). I love the balanced approach of host, Claire Bartholic. She’s down to business - no fluff. I always come away from this podcast informed and inspired to continue my running and fitness journey. Make this Podcast a regular listen.

    Great podcast for runners
    Love the podcast, have been listening to it for years on my runs. I like the new format too and always learn something new. I like the non traditional topics as well that set this podcast apart from others. Claire also has a very soothing voice!

    INJURY 😱
    I had an ankle injury in February this year. I’m still on the mend but I stay connected to running by listening to the show. It’s a great way for me to ‘stay in the game’ even though it’s been almost two months since my injury
  • kprnng
    Always helpful & inspiring guests on the podcast! It’s been great to have this podcast along my running journey.
  • I guess my nickname was taken...
    You won’t be disappointed!
    Each episode is full of useful information and Claire always has great guests to interview.
  • BillieSuttlea

    Look forward to every week!

    Excellent running podcast
    Run to the Top is a great source of information for all runners, whether you’re a beginner or a more experienced runner. I’ve been listening for years, and still learning new things all the time.

  • ddewees
    The best running podcast!
    I’ve learned so much by listening to Run To The Top. Undoubtedly, the show has helped me become a better runner! I truly believe it’s one of the biggest factors as to of how I’ve managed to stay healthy, avoid injury, and run faster! I love the variety of topics, experts, and first-hand experiences. Even though some episodes are focused on topics that are not obviously applicable to my own goals or interests, I still manage to learn something valuable by listening. Thank you for the great information!
  • weston walker
    Great Podcast!!
    Love this Podcast!! It is so informative and I can’t say enough good things about it!!
  • Matt Gaidica
    Chatty, lacks evidence
    Really great conversations around a central theme (running). Take this review as a complement that I’m still aboard: even though experts are brought on, advice is pretty wishy washy. There are statements like, “carbohydrates are so important for recovery… but so is protein and fat.” Okay, so food is important. I also just heard, “I think all stress is the same… as if a saber toothed tiger is chasing us.” That’s absolutely wrong, there are U-shaped curves involved. Point being, all running is not activating fight or flight, meaning recovery techniques should be spoken about in a more nuanced fashion. Because these details are overlooked, the episodes blend together, and after listening to more than 10, you get the idea: moderation. I would appreciate more studies, and even hard positions if not just to serve as a starting point to examine pros/cons of techniques and strategies.

    Great podcast on everything to do with running: nutrition, form, gear, hormones, pacing, training and more! Love listening to Claire and her excellent guests while I run!
  • DerrickNabors

    Learning Lots!!
    I’m new to running and this is my go to show to learn more out my new passion. It’s also a great way to keep myself motivated — and fun to listen to while I run!!
  • TheRunner2121
    Awesome Podcast
    What an amazing opportunity for runners at all stages of their career!
  • AKRunner.LEA
    A podcast for every runner!
    Thanks so much for delivering applicable, useful running info! You confirm things I was wondering about and built upon my knowledge base. I would love more info on how to execute a marathon taper, my peak mileage weeks have been in the 60-70 mile range.
  • Smiles: )
    Thanks for keeping me company
    I am one of those listeners who is hitting the play button for this show when I head out for a run. So thank you for the company. I always come back more informed on running. I also come back with a better idea of how my next race plan will go. Loved the last show on the 5k. Because I do one a year #turkeytrot. This year I broke through my 24 min barrier and got a 23. Which showed me that speed work really does help. Hope this will help me on my Marathon. Going for 3:50. Thanks again, kathy.
  • angster321
    So Helpful!
    Finally! This podcast provides so much good information. I’m a recreational runner, but have learned a ton from this podcast and feel much more confident in my approach to running.
  • Brianyarbrough2
    One of the best running podcasts
    I have subscribed to the RTTTP podcast since October of 2017. I have long enjoyed their informative and entertaining interviews. I also appreciate the new short tip segments with Coach Claire Bartholic. The quality is better than ever with Claire’s articulate easy to listen to voice; she is the best host yet.
  • spiralwriter
    Great focus on one subject per episode
    I really like the deep dive into one topic for each show with Run to the Top. Great way to learn, and makes it easy to return for a review later on.
  • Kidcoos3
    Short and Sweet
    Really enjoy this podcast. Very informative without being long and drawn out like too many.
  • P3498
    Informative and direct
    Love that the episodes are informative and direct. Can listen to a full episode during the drive home from work. Topics are always relative and lessons easy to integrate into the training routine. Thanks Claire!
  • just a regular runner
    Great advice about running
    Found these podcasts by chance- mentioned on another running podcast. I am now totally hooked and wait anxiously for the new episodes each week! The topics are super relevant and have given me so many great tips for running smarter. I have recommended this podcast to many and as well their running clinics online. Add these together and you get an arsenal of information to use to move your running to the next level of fun and fitness.
