Wow, what a full show. Going for 20th finish at Hardrock this year, former Hardrock winner, Nolans 14, second finisher ever of Barkley (with scandal!), tinkering with nuclear weapons, and so much more. Join us today as we chat with Blake Wood from his bedroom closet.
Join us for a special edition of Elevation Trail as we welcome guest co-host, Julie Gayheart (Gary is flying to the First Satanic Church headquarters to stop this bloodshed nonsense). Julie is a master with the poles, err, uh, whatever. I’ve known her for the last ten years and we chat about running, the evolution of the trail running community in North Carolina, lotteries, and the Appalachian Trail. Oh, and we talk a bit about my job at the funeral home when I was in high school.
And, the top ten list this week is… Top 10 ways to get kicked out of the “sport” of ultrarunning. Hope you enjoy!

Hardrock announced big changes with its qualification standards yesterday. On today’s show we chat with long time Hardrock board member, Andrea Feucht about the changes, which also include a slap on the wrist and omission of the Leadville 100… Hope you enjoy today’s show.
Welcome back to Elevation Trail where today we have a great conversation with Andrea Feucht, who has been on the Hardrock 100 board for 14 years. She provides terrific insight into maintaining the core values of the event while the sport and outside pressures grow.
We also discuss the newly announced Ultra-Trail World Tour and the silliness surrounding the Grand Slam of Ultrarunning and hope we don’t get sued for mentioning the name. Download and enjoy this awesome show on your next run or long drive (or at work – just don’t let The Man catch you). Hope you enjoy it!

Elevation Trail – The Grand Slam of Podcasting
Welcome back to Elevation Trail and the FM Show with Gary David and Footfeathers. Today we cover a variety of topics, including older athletes dominating at Hardrock, the diversity of ultra events this week (Hardrock, Badwater, Self Transcendence, Vol State), PEDs and buying speed/results in sports whether through products or substances, and some other stuff we hope you’ll find entertaining.
We would love to hear from listeners on their opinions regarding some of these topics, so please leave a comment!
Welcome to the Footfeathers Show here on Elevation Trail. I’ve been following this guest since I ran my first ultra. He’s tough, he’s fast, he’s competitive, and he’s a super nice guy. It’s a pleasure to have Jeff Browning on the show. We have a great conversation, in which he talks about how to run 100 miles with some entertaining and valuable insights. I hope you enjoy it because I sure did.
