The Trail Running Film Festival - Back on Tour for 2024.

Brian Metzler explains what happened this weekend for Outside:

“We basically screwed up. I’ll own it,” (Jamil) Coury said. “We miscategorized them in the online race results, and our team was amplifying that on social media based on some internal miscommunication. We didn’t play through every scenario, and there are probably scenarios that are still unforeseen.”

The Aravaipa team with the help of Western States’ Craig Thornley jumped in and got things fixed and figured out. This is the first time in the trail racing world (in my recollection) a high stakes situation involved non-binary runners and it created some unforeseen situations that, if I observed correctly mainly frustrated men on Twitter, everyone else seemed cool with the changes, updates and fixes.

We’re learning and we’re moving in the right direction.
