iRunFar Live at Western StatesFor the first time ever, we’ll be broadcasting many of our pre-race interviews live from California ahead of this year’s Western States 100. This will happen in three sessions this coming Wednesday and Thursday, June 20th and 21st.

You’ll be able to watch all the interviews right here on this page, and, if you’re lucky enough to be in Olympic Valley, please come join us at Coffeebar (1750 Village East Road, Unit 61) to watch the interviews live and, after the interviews, enjoy a meet and greet with some of the interviewees as well as the hosts, iRunFar’s Meghan Hicks and Bryon Powell, and our co-host Dylan Bowman.

In another iRunFar first, we’ll also have full selection of iRunFar gear available for purchase, including Drymax running socks, BUFF® Original Multifunction Headwear, shirts, gloves, books (with authors there to personalize your copy!), and more.

Coffeebar logoA special thanks to Drymax for once again making our coverage of the Western States 100 possible! Thanks also to BUFF® and Jaybird for their support of our Western States coverage.

Finally, thanks to Coffeebar for hosting these events. Coffeebar will have food and drink specials at the ready, including homemade energy bites, breakfast burritos, paleo bowls, and a 3-6 p.m. happy hour with $5 draft beer and house wine along with 2 for $5 canned beers. Enjoy a delicious breakfast or a tasty beverage while you watch.

iRunFar Live at Western States Schedule

Below is the preliminary iRunFar Live at Western States schedule. The times for each session are set, but individual interviews are subject to change. We’ll update the schedule as soon as we learn of any changes that might occur. For those watching from afar, all times are Pacific Daylight Time (PDT), the local time in California.

For the very observant, our schedule on social media calls for the first 90 minutes of each session to be dedicated to interviews while it’s only 75 minutes below… we’re just anticipating a little schedule creep. We’ll keep the cameras running until the interviews are over, and, then, turn them off for the meet and greet.

Wednesday Morning (10 a.m. – 12 p.m.)

Thursday Morning (10 a.m. – 12 p.m.)

Thursday Afternoon (4:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m.)
