“Hey, Bryon, can you give me a lift back to my car in Tahoe City?” queried Sean Meissner, not long after winning the Lake Tahoe Marathon two Sunday’s ago. I quickly replied, “Sure,” as I was headed that way to help out with Kilian Jornet’s running of the Tahoe Rim Trail as part of his […]

Please forgive me, but I can’t help but post once more about Kilian Jornet’s Tahoe Rim Trail before it kicks off at 5 a.m. Pacific Time Monday morning. The Salomon crew is assembled in Tahoe City, the pacing sections are assigned, and Kilian is (hopefully) getting his final hours of sleep until Tuesday night. I’m […]

With little over a week until Catalan’s Kilian Jornet runs the Tahoe Rim Trail, we’re getting pretty excited here at iRunFar. As each new detail filters in, the journey becomes a little more real. Just this morning we learned that Kilian will start his trek in Tahoe city and run clockwise around Lake Tahoe. While […]

Montrail runner Geoff Roes smashed the Wasatch Front 100 in 18:30:55. Kyle Skaggs set the previous record of 19:35 in 2007. That’s over an hour improvement on well-established, always competitive course. He also dropped an hour and a half from his previous Wasatch time of 20:01:07, which he ran en route to winning last year. […]

I’ll be out the Wasatch 100 on Friday and Saturday. I’m not sure when I’ll catch up with the race, but there will likely updates from Lamb’s Canyon (mid race) and almost certainly from the finish. There could be more from Big Mountain (mile 40ish) and Brighton (mile 75), as well. The easiest way for […]

While I (almost) never publish press releases, this one is too close to my heart not to do so. At the end of this month, Kilian Jornet will be attempting to run the Tahoe Rim Trail. While Kilian’s out there, he’ll surely know that Tim Tweitmeyer set the Tahoe Rim Trail speed record of 45 […]

With a weekend of perfect weather on the west side of the Tetons it’s no surprise that records were falling like boulders during the thaw. Over the course of two days, both the men’s and women’s 100 mile records as well as the men’s 50 mile record fell. In fact, multiple folks snuck under the […]

This is iRunFar’s first round up post in quite awhile. It’s got some news that we didn’t squeeze into our White River 50 race report, the end of END Footwear, and an article over at Competitor Running that might interest you. Update: We’ll also throw in the tidbit that Montrail is discontinuing its iconic Hardrock… […]

When we recently decided to cover the White River 50 we took a look at the entrants list and were really excited by what we saw: Krupicka, Wardian, Koerner, Jurek, Crowther, Morrison, Lint, Freeman, Kochik, Browning, and Semick. These guys (and gal) did not disappoint. At the end of the day, Kami Semick and Anton […]

This evening Montrail announced some major improvements to the Montrail Ultra Cup. Among those improvements are the addition of a couple races that make the MUC more geographically diverse, an increased emphasis on longer races, and more flexibility in the race series. We know for a fact that Montrail consulted extensively with its athletes in […]
