Episode 25: Rosco's Runners
Earlier this year, Human Race asked listeners to send in stories about their run clubs. We got inspiring, motivating, and touching stories from all over the country—exactly what we were hoping for.But then we got a story so unexpected, so charming, so zany, that we couldn’t possibly pass it up. This week, Human Race goes to Colorado Springs to run with donkeys. That’s right. Donkeys. And what we found there wasn’t just a novelty club. When “you teach someone else not only how to [run with donkeys] but why to do it,” says Shaw, “That forms a more unique bond between people.” Rosco’s Runners is a club that’s had a powerful effect on the local community—as well as the people who run it.Rosco’s Runners Videos:Rosco's Th@nksgivingRosco likes Human RaceEpisode Credits:Host & producer: Rachel SwabyEditing help: Sylvia Ryerson and Brian DalekSpecial thanks to Kevin Shaw, Suzanne Shaw, and Tony White.Thanks to Sam White for donkey running recording help.Theme music: Danny CockeHuman Race is a proud part of PanoplyThis episode of Human Race is brought to you by Brooks.
