Winter, trails, darkness, and all the weather.
One last hurrah before the end of the year. Runners, get ready for a fun and festive holiday treat along the trails of Squaxin Park.
Bryon in his farewell post:
…iRunFar grew from a personal training blog to a one-man informational website to one full-on media entity. Today, we have four full-time staff, a slew of supporting staff within AllGear Digital, and many columnists, writers, and race coverage assistants. I’m proud of the fact that iRunFar is now a global leader in trail running and ultrarunning.
However, it’s time for me to pass on the baton of leadership while I collect my breath and support the team as they sprint on. Fortunately, the most capable hands of our current Managing Editor, Meghan Hicks, are there to receive the handoff and run the next leg as Editor-in-Chief.
No other outdoor media blog/product has shaped the ultra racing world as much as iRunFar over the last few years. Their team pioneered live reporting via Twitter from major races while staying true to their scrappy blog feel of old. And while they added pre and post race video interviews they never “pivoted to video” or jumped on any other short lived new media trend.
I’m glad to hear they are sticking around and staying in good hands.
