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.
From the crowdfunding page:
A breathtaking photographic journey of the places and people who make the Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc (UTMB) the world’s most prestigious trail-running race.
New photo book by Alexis Berg and Aurélien Delfosse just in time for UTMB week. Or rather a bit late as it’s just pre-announced and won’t ship for a few weeks. Alexis Berg is behind the amazing projects ‘Grand Trail: A Magnificent Journey to the Heart of Ultrarunning and Racing‘ and ‘The Finishers The Barkley Marathons‘ so you know it’ll be good.
The full title of the book rubs me a bit wrong: ‘UTMB The Race that Transformed a Sport’. Why? Well, remember Doug Meyer’s book? ‘The Race that Changed Running‘. So clearly we’re not very creative over there in the book naming departments. Good thing I titled my podcast episode with Doug ‘UTMB Changed Everything‘. I covered all the bases.
