    • We won't have a webcam at Foresthill. The mobile signal's just not reliable enough for a continuous, reliable video stream with so many people on their phones there in a small town.

  • We SO appreciate your coverage! Thank you! Will there be any info coming out on Kyle Robidoux? Not an elite runner but he is a blind runner and I think one of the first attempting Western States? Just an idea. Either way, huge gratitude to all the coverage and interview you and Meghan do! Much appreciated!
