…speaking of Roes, Geoff discusses the recent globalization of ultrarunning and how it might affect the sport.

…and speaking of global series…Skyrunning is coming to Australia.  Maybe I’m missing something, but what’s all the excitement about Skyrunning? These races already existed, right? Isn’t this just a label on them? Please help.
