This week, we talk He-Man and nostalgia reboots before diving into Doug’s latest trail encounter with a bear and cubs. Mathias has a 100k over the weekend in the PNW, which is a great systems check before the Ultra Tour Monte Rosa race later in the summer. After the appetizer conversation, the problem of trail running’s struggles to be inclusive in the United States. How can the sport grow with people who don’t necessarily want to share the trails? How does the Ironman-UTMB relationship impact the sport today? How will races take place on already stressed public lands? How does the permitting system impact trail running’s growth as a sport? Do we come up with any solid answers? Give it a listen and let us know what you think!
