The Ascent of the King of Versatility
In this episode of the Art and Science of Running podcast, we speak with one of the most decorated, versatile runners in the world- Max King. Despite never qualifying for the Oregon State Track & Field Championships, Max went on to become an NCAA All-American in the steeplechase, Olympic Trails Qualifier in the steeplechase and the marathon, and represented the US at the World Cross Country Championships before taking the trail, mountain and ultra running world by storm. Max has won multiple national and world championships in mountain running, obstacle course racing, XTERRA trail half marathons, and road and trail 50K and 100Ks.
Engineering Training and Racing
In addition to running for Cornell University, Max studied and earned a degree in chemical engineering and brings his engineering background to his approach to training and racing. After years of intense study, training and racing, Max took two years off from running. In this interview we discuss how Max trains to compete over a variety of surfaces, distances, and disciplines, how he strives to avoid burnout and fatigue, what he loves about the sport, and how he is giving back.
