Ian Sharman joins Elevation Trail for a wide ranging, no punches pulled conversation. Gary (in his slutty ways) is now the number 1 fan of Ian. You won’t want to miss that. We talk Skyrunning, coaching, smart training, hill running, race strategy, living in the USA, Elvis, new running gadgets, his records, and a lot more. Hope you enjoy it.

Music by LCW. Song “Take Back”

Reviews of Elevation Trail – Get RAW

Don’t forget to write your review of Elevation Trail. We’ll read some of them this week on the show Thursday. You can either write the review on your blog (give us the link!) or email it to us at tim @ elevationtrail . com

We value your feedback – you can serve as a creative influence on the direction of ET! (or at least give us something fun to talk about).

Do you want the shows to be ALL about running? Do you like other topics? Which sports and activities should we cover? Are the shows too long? Does Tim say “um” too many times? Does Gary talk too much? Do you wish there were more production skills (i.e. inserted music for effect, clips of conversations inserted, etc)? Are the shows too frequent? Would you like two or more a week? Do you prefer when we interview guests or just have the two of use chatting away? What are some of your favorite things about the show? Things you don’t like?

Tell us! Make this a give and take community. We’re obviously not that worried about pleasing everyone but we would like to know how certain things work and don’t work for ET Mob.

Oh, and buy a fuckin’ hat. I have a box of them sitting here.

Live Shows at Elevation Trail

on airHere at Elevation Trail we’re proud to announce we’ll be doing LIVE shows starting this month.  The cool part, aside from getting the likely chance of me screwing up or swearing, is that you, the listener, will be able to call in with comments, questions, and generally participate in the discussion.  Pretty cool!


The live shows will still be recorded and available here on our site and on iTunes for you to download and enjoy on your next run or long drive.  Looking forward to hearing from you folks “on air”…

Hold onto yourself for this show.  Today we have none other than Gary Cantrell, aka “Lazarus Lake” joining us to discuss his rich and deep history in ultrarunning and get his perspective on the changes our sport has seen and where it’s going.  We also chat about the events he’s involved in, including a little beginner race called Barkley.  Hope you enjoy the show!

Ultrarunning – Environmental Sustainability

TrailErosion-2As ultrarunning gains popularity and the number of runners flock to the trails, what impact does it have on the environment?  Today, we have a special guest, a geologist from Bentley University, Rick Oches, to discuss some of the issues revolving around us “loving” our trails to death.

We hope you enjoy the conversation and provide your feelings and comments.  Thanks for listening!
