What better way to catch up with two top competitors in this weekend’s The North Face Endurance Challenge Championships than to go for a run with them and then interview them. That’s just what I did with Dave Mackey and Dakota Jones. Mackey’s been burning up trail races for nearly as long as Jones has been alive, but, respectively, the former adventurer racer and the college student graciously shared the stage with one another. Here’s what they had to say about their training, their recent racing, and what they expect this weekend.
Ps. Happy early birthday to Dakota, who turns 20 the day after the race.
