Steve Auch is back on Singletrack and barely recovered from a massive weekend race directing the popular City und Trail event in Bad Reichenhall in the Bavarian Alps in Germany. We talk about the beauty and the challenges of directing races, the inspiration and the difference between races in the US and Europe and how to transition from behind the megaphone to putting the bib back on yourself.
In this episode we take a new look at the difference between trail races in Europe and North America. German trail runner Steve Auch joins us and shares his experience running the Zugspitz Trail, Lavaredo, Squamish and The Rut. His dream race, is and will be Western States, until the lottery gods finally grant him his wish.
