The Best of iRunFar in 2012

Wow, it’s hard to believe that this is the 479th iRunFar article of 2012… or that the year has come so quickly to a close. Over the preceding annum, we’ve traveled to Texas, Washington, Arkansas, Morocco, Italy, California (three times), Spain, Pennsylvania, Colorado (three times), France, and Virginia to report on the best trail running action (as well as covering races in our home state of Utah). Our reporting team has helped us cover even more races from around the globe. Don’t even ask us how many pieces of running gear the iRunFar crew has investigated… we lost track when our notepad got stuck on the other side of the Grand Shoebox Divide. Still, with so much content, some pieces rise to the top, whether through ideation, creation, discussion, or subject matter. It’s a few of these articles that we want to take the time to point out as iRunFar’s busiest and best year comes to a close.
