Few people love a race as much as Andy Jones-Wilkins loves the Western States 100. This year, AJW will be going for his 10th finish, after which he has vowed to retire from the race. **cough, cough** In the following 40-plus minute interview, Andy talks about everything from this year’s race to how the race and sport have changed since he started running the event, from his own legacy, to how he plans to stay in the sport moving forward.

Somewhere between a sports talk show, an homage, and a memoir, there’s this time and place where people share a passion. Enjoy.
