Trail and Ultrarunner Interviews and Profiles

By Bryon Powell on April 1, 2018

Over the past decade, we’ve written about many of trail running and ultrarunning’s top runners. Often, that’s taken the form of general profiles and interviews, which we include directly below. Sometimes these interviews followed a particular performance, and we note where such is the case. Of course, we’ve conducted literally thousands of video interviews through the years and we hope to incorporate some of the more informative interviews on this page in the future.

We’re also proud to have interviewed dozens of folks who’ve made their mark on the sport while not necessarily doing so from the front of the pack. Jump below for our ever growing collection of WeRunFar profiles that highlight community leaders from around the sport. We’ve also profiled a number of race directors, team managers, photographers, and filmmakers outside the scope of our WeRunFar column.

Finally, our sport’s lost some great people during iRunFar’s existence. We highlight a few of them below.
