Trail and mountain running have been around for years, flourishing across the globe in so much uniqueness and tradition, in so many different climates and elevations, distances and purpose, among so many different people . At Inside Trail the plan is to curate the mountain/trail exhibition in a very committed way that speaks to the passion we both have for the sport and its humanity. First and foremost, this passion insists that the rest of the crazed dirty rockers out there share in this passion. This sport deserves a lot more exposure (news coverage, insight, etc.) and we know you all have a lot to say.
We will provide as much exposure to this world of trail and mountain running as possible, via athlete interviews, race previews and reports, commentary, gear reviews, and so on. What else will we include at Inside Trail? You tell us. For this to be truly cutting-edge (which is clearly the goal) and innovative, we need feedback from any and all readers out there. Starting now. Speak your mind. If you think you might ruffle our feathers, come across as a bit too out-spoken, then you need to get to know us. Keep visiting and reading. We have a lot to say, and sometimes we might say too much (oops!).
Either way, we take this sport and the lifestyle VERY seriously. We hope you enjoy.
Of course, this (www.matt-feet.blogspot.com) will remain my personal blog, which I will continue to use for more personal stuff. I will always direct people (the 1 or 2 readers I get) to Inside Trail for "the news," the work we're doing to provide readers with all things trail and mountain and ultra running.
We have posted a great and rare interview with French mountain/ultra runner Julien Chorier. Check-out his account of the madness at HR100 where he pulled-off a truly impressive win in historically brutal conditions.
Stay-tuned for tomorrow's Sierre-Zinal post. This European mountain running classic goes off August 14 (this weekend). That post will be followed by an interview with Nick Clark, whose trail and mountain podium grit is becoming the gold of our own market exchange. He's in-route to Europe as we speak to run SZ and then the UTMB. You don't want to miss that.
Next week we will have previews of Pikes Peak, Leadville and UTMB, but given the trail obsession running amok over here, we will almost certainly be digging-up other dirty goods to share. Please keep in mind that these posts are not the results of one's cutting and pasting from various race websites. It involves a bit more than that.
Inside Trail. Read. On.
