Episode 32 with Jim Mann: Trees Not Tees

James and Dan catch up before an interview with Trees not Tees founder Jim Mann. Jim is probably best known for being one of the UK’s top mountain runners of recent years. Amongst his accolades are wins at the Dragons Back, Spine Challenger, Cheviot Goat and most impressively – in 2017 he set winter records on each of the three British rounds (PB, BG, CR) all within the space of a month . Last year he established Trees Not Tees, a movement to encourage runners and organisers to reduce plastic use and running event waste by reducing the number of finisher awards created and handed out and encouraging those funds to go towards planting trees. That is the focus of the interview here. https://www.treesnottees.com.
