Welcome to episode 8, series 2 of the Women’s Running podcast. In this episode we speak to Leanne Davies, the founder of Run Mummy Run. Run Mummy Run have just reached their 8-birthday milestone, and we spoke to Leanne just beforehand, and her passion for women’s health and wellbeing is extraordinary. From an initial group of just three runners, Run Mummy Run has grown into a unique community that supports and nurtures thousands of members, all abiding by Leanne’s overriding ethos, which has kindness at its heart. While running is the theme that connects these women, Run Mummy Run, as Leanne explains, has become so much more than that: its ever-present support network has become nothing less than an emergency service for all women – not just mothers – who seek advice and friendship on everything from running to relationships, providing emotional support during times of hardship as well as celebrating each other's successes. Leanne is so passionate about her community which has, she told us, supported her just as much as she has sought to support it. For many, Run Mummy Run isn’t just about wearing the beautiful kit - it’s nothing short of a lifeline. We can’t wait to find out what they're going to get up to next!
