      It appears irunfar fully ventured internationally – competitions, races and runners. I understand the idea of not covering event "as it goes" unless you're present there – but not giving field description of US races and runners is a little sad.

        I have to agree. I appreciate that it was a choice, but Leadville is a big race. Plenty of awesome people running (Krar, Sharman, Aish, etc.) and part of the Grand Slam.

        I did like the Squamish coverage, to be fair. However, I think getting the site in up to speed with a forum section (I know it's been discussed before) should be first priority instead of going out to smaller, lesser known races. It would have been nice to have a forum where any member could have made an "OFFICIAL LEADVILLE LIVE THREAD" or something for us to follow. Currently there is no way to do that and really the only for us to voice our opinion publicly about even this lack of Leadville coverage is to post a comment in a random post like we're doing now.

            I understand that people wanted IRF to be at Leadville this year, but in many of the comments this week, it feels as if people feel "cheated" that IRF didn't cover it. IRF does an incredible job at covering an astounding number of races at all times of year, and shouldn't be criticized for choosing not to spend a huge amount of time and energy that covering a race takes (especially given the fact that IRF had a valid reasons for not going, ie Squamish).
            Also, IRF's twitter still kept us fairly up to date on Leadville race day, and gave us periodic check-ins throughout the race, as well as telling us the men's podium and women's winner within minutes of their respective finishes.
            Thank you Bryon, Meghan, and the rest of the IRF team for all you do for our sport.

    i tried to follow along but i feel asleep. now i have some incredible pictures to go look at, and stevie won!? hope we get another post race interview with her. the last time was a hoot! Also, i love kilian's tweet that running around taking pics was harder than racing =)

        That said, I’m pretty sure Kilian put in about 3,000 meters of climbing to go to his crew/photo points today. When I saw him commuting between spots, he was running what looked close to race pace. Maybe he was also a little tired from, you know, summitting the Matterhorn yesterday? ;)
