    In this episode of Singletrack we connect with multi-faceted athlete Marchel Höche of the Adidas Terrex team calling in from beautiful Garmisch-Partenkirchen, in the south of Germany. Marcel shares his FKT on the historical and quite difficult Jubiläumsgrat on the Zugspitze. We chat about the diverse trail racing landscape in Europe and what it means to run as part of a larger trail running team. Finally as a cofounder of the German Skyrunning Federation Marcel shares some challenges and opportunities in getting the organization positioned in the outdoor nonprofit landscape of Germany.

    'A Fun Ridge Linkup', with Barrett Gray and Charlie Levy

    'A Fun Ridge Linkup', with Barrett Gray and Charlie Levy

    Barrett Gray and Charlie Levy are the first ones to successfully follow my footsteps and complete the Cushman Six. This FKT route above Lake Cushman in the Olympics is just the right mix of trail running, bushwhacking, and climbing to make it challenging, fun, and a very unique adventure experience. And Barrett and Charlie bring just the right amount of experience and speed to the project and take 4 hrs off the time I, Scott, and Chris established almost 2 years ago. Here is the story of their successful run of the Cushman Six. So honored to have them complete this project.

Great mostly ultra-running podcast

Great content, interesting guests who are mostly non-elite, with banter that can wander all over, in a good way! Love the PNW focus of some episodes as well.

Overwhelmingly underwhelming

If you’re interested in fast food, logo designs, website designs and expert advice on running ultras and directing races from rank amateurs, this is the podcast for you! Never run a 100? No problem neither have these two! You can still pretend you know what it’s like fantasizing about the experience in the alternate reality the hosts exist in! Wanna listen to an hour and half about how the hosts ran a monster 35 mile week? They’ve got you covered! In a word riveting!

Running but also more.

These guys are passionate about running-- and that's cool--but I come back weekly for the casual banter, public land advocacy, and no BS attitudes. It's truly enjoyable to hear the variety each week and the hilarious antics around such topics as short shorts, buns, and obnoxious clothing.
