Justin and IRF bring most of the Ultramarathon and trail running results from this past weekend. My first thought when I read about the naturalist 50k was…ouch.
Great attitude and a fun story: Here’s our latest interview with Milwaukee native Annie Weiss. Annie just set the overall FKT for the 1200 mile Ice Age Trail and learned some great lessons along the way.

If pumpkin spiced beer wasn’t bad enough, now we’ve got pumpkin spice running shoes and underwear. Make it stop!
New IAAF regulations for road races offer events “certified” status in order to standardize races, registration, and coverage. A platinum label will show that RDs are committed to gender equity, but removes the requirement that these events must represent multiple countries, allowing races to focus on building local talent. I’m curious to see how this effects registration at these races and if trail races ever seek this type of standardization.
