TWIR: All the results from trail and ultramarathon events over the weekend.
Amelia Boone joins Matt B Davis on Obstacle Racing Media to talk about athlete contracts in both OCR and MUT racing.

🇺🇦 Andrii Tkachuk has gone from running for @AltraRunning to fighting for his country. In 2021, Tkachuk finished a 25 hour race w/183.53 miles-the 3rd farthest EVER, after only Sorokin and Kouros. In 2022, Andrei, a reservist in the Ukrainian army, is now at war. 🙏🙏💙💛😢 pic.twitter.com/J1KPPScdf4

Davy Crockett takes us back to the Padre Island 110 miler, a “walkathon” (running prohibited) held in Texas in the 1950s where men and women competed for prize money, cigarette lighters and appliances.
This article mainly focuses on hunters, but it’s also a good heads up to trailrunnners who travers the lines between public and private lands. Even though you may never step foot on private land, if you cross it a corner and invade it’s “air space” you may be charged with trespassing. One of the comments indicates that CA landowners must provide a way through to access public lands…Can anyone verify that?
A term I wasn’t familiar with: Sportswashing. Good article on how corrupt countries attempt to use sporting to improve their image.
Great essay about the best performance enhancer: FUN!
The Speedgoat wins another 100. For those counting, that’s 22 years in a row.
