Ultra running and long distance races don’t typically have water stops and big crowds!

Ultra running and long distance races don’t typically have water stops and big crowds!

Welcome back to the Hashtag 59 podcast!

First a reminder: Our long form podcasts are now released on the last day of each month.
We also are doing shorter form podcast profiles of our guests prior to each release!

This month we are discussing a growing, and grueling, outdoor adventure activity: Ultra Running and Long Distance Running!
Before you decide “I’m not a runner and this one is not for me” I encourage you to stay with us. The stories that are shared go way beyond running and you might find incredible, inspiring, funny, and almost unbelievable. Our point is…even if you aren’t a runner you might really enjoy this podcast!

We have two special guests joining us on the conversation to discuss the world of ultra running, the benefits and hardships of long distance races, who the best runners in the world are, some of their craziest experiences out on the course, and what’s coming next in this new sport.

We hope you enjoy the Ultra Running and Long Distance Running Podcast!
