Fun and funny podcast about trail running for everybody

Always enjoy listening to this podcast to hear about trail running as it takes everybody’s perspective into account. Always with a fun and funny approach as we get stories from the front, middle, and back of the pack.

Best on the Beast Coast

The Cultra Crew (Art, Fred, Becky, and Jimmy) keep the conversation light and hilarious while discussing beast coast trail running and races. Fred provides valuable insights based on his vast ultra-running experience, Jimmy is quick-witted and can riff on absolutely anything, Becky is the heart of the podcast, and Art….well, Art really wants to tell you about the time he biked the Erie Canal. Just kidding, Art is the show’s leader and also brings a lot of northeast trail running experience to the pod.
I’ve met them all in person and can tell you they are genuinely great people.
