Ten Junk Miles is a free audio podcast hosted by attorney Scott Kummer. It was launched on January 7, 2015 by Scott Kummer and Cory Feign.


Before starting Ten Junk Miles(TJM), Scott Kummer was co-founder of the Flatlander Ultrarunners in Chicagoland which grew to over 2000 members.[1] Scott Kummer has a lot of running experience, including ten 100-mile finishes, dozens of half and full marathons, plenty of 50-milers, and 5ks.[1][2]

Show Format[edit]

The Ten Junk Miles Podcast has a format which rotates between a “Gang Show” and a “Long Run” and releases new episodes about every week. The Gang Show is unscripted with various hosts for roughly 2 hours. The Long Run features a one-on-one interview between the show’s founder, Scott Kummer, and a VIP in the running community.[3]


Guests have included world record holder, Camille Herron,[4][5][6] Ann Trason,[7] and founder of Trail Sisters, Gina Lucrezi.[8] Other guests include Samantha Gash,[9] Mary Katherine Ham,[10] Jenn Shelton,[11] Chirine Njeim,[12] Sue Lucas,[13] Jennifer Pharr Davis,[14] Timothy Noakes,[15] Lisa Smith-Batchen,[16] Michael Wardian,[17] Serena Scott Thomas,[18] Charlie Engle[19] and Jesse Itzler.[20] In addition to those, TJM also features people that may not be as recognized, but are making a difference in the running world.[3] Host Scott Kummer is also a guest for an episode.[21]


In January 2019, the podcast had 1.6 million downloads and reviews from listeners worldwide in 144 countries.[22]

Ten Junk Miles is ranked in the top ten all time of running podcasts.[23]

Ten Junk Miles hosts races including The Badger Trail Races, which offer a 100 mile, 100K, 50 mile, 50K, Marathon, and Half Marathon.[3] [24][25]

Controversial and difficult subjects are routinely broached on the show, with guests and hosts discussing subjects such as cheating,[26][27][28][29] gender,[30] and cancer.[31]

Ten Junk Miles has influenced and inspired other podcasts to adopt their “gang of friends chatting casually” format.[32]

Ten Junk Miles instigated the Worlds Longest Turkey Trot from Milwaukee to Chicago, titled the “Alfredo Pedro Perro World’s Longest Turkey Trot" in honor of ultramarathoner, Alfredo Perro, funds go to Les Turner ALS Foundation.[33][34][35]

A Strava club for fans of Ten Junk Miles reached 2169 members by the end of 2019.[36]
