Description

As the sun sets on my tenure as a UTMB commentator, the parallels between tough breakups and difficult career transitions have never been clearer. This week, Corrine Malcolm joins us to unravel the emotional and professional complexities of the trail running world, from the strategic depths of biathlon to the lessons learned in ultrarunning's unforgiving embrace. Together, we dissect the intricate balance required in commentary – the blend of authenticity and diplomacy – and how the commercialization through initiatives like the UTMB World Series is reshaping the sport's landscape and its community.

Trail running broadcasts often don't capture the full story, particularly when it comes to women's races. In our conversation, we tackle this head-on, discussing the behind-the-scenes hurdles that can lead to unequal coverage and the innovative strategies that could level the playing field. Furthermore, Corrine and I delve into the navigation of athlete-brand relationships and how understanding mutual expectations can lead to more fulfilling partnerships. Amidst all, we underscore the significance of athlete voices in shaping the trail running future through professional associations.

Closing out the discussion, we reflect on the poignant personal narratives of fellow runners and the deep connections forged through shared endurance trials. As your host, I remain ever-passionate about advocating for our community's interests above organizational agendas, striving for transparency and integrity in the evolving world of trail running. The essence of our sport is at a crossroads, and together, with the insights from voices like Corrine's, we're committed to preserving its heart and soul while eagerly embracing the changes ahead.
