This show has been on the "To Do" list for quite some time. Here at TrailManners we have been talking about and staying more than confused about the 200 mile race distance. We sent Ben a message and he was all over it. Ben is such a great person and as you will hear, he is a tremendous athlete with unparalleled desire. We had a great time talking with Ben in Studio 78 and we are already planning on getting him back on again.
Enjoy the show!

Joel got all dressed up for this weeks episode of the Singletrack Session. Why? Cause he likes to roll like that. This week we give some east coast love for a Hardrock qualifier, let you know some great races that just opened for 2018 and talk a little but about "Virtual races". Help us out here....
Have a great weekend and don't forget to get out and run.

It is already the end of September and we have seen some snow fly. It is a great time to remember to make sure you are prepared when heading to higher elevations. It can get nasty and change on a dime - stay safe and have the proper gear. This weekend is also the Bear 100 in Logan, Utah- one of our favorites. Good Luck to all those running. BEANIES....Beanies are coming- stay tuned....
Have a great week and thanks for your support!

Our repeat champion, Luke Nelson, is back to fill us in on his 2017 activism, adventures and what he has in store for 2018.
When we last spoke with Luke Nelson, in February of 2017, he was preparing for RUFA and hinted at some extraordinary adventure runs for the Summer of 2017 (Utah 13ers and Nolans). In this interview we learned that Luke and Jared Campbell set the record for the fastest traverse of Utah’s 13ers and that they had a successful attempt at Nolans but did come up a bit short on the Nolans FKT.
We wrap up the interview talking about the Bear 100, running Hardrock 100 or even maybe Barkley’s Marathon (yikes!), and the new race distances for the 2018 SMUT.

The Wasatch 100 has another 2 time winner- Trevor Fuchs. We sit Trevor down in Studio 78 two days after another impressive win at the 2017 Wasatch 100. He pretty much ran at the front from the start and had a nearly flawless day. We cover the past year from working with a coach for the first time, running the inaugural Gib Wallace race (shameless plug) and getting married to his beautiful wife Tempest. Hanging out with Trevor is a blast and you can just see the love he has for trail running and the local trail community when he talks. After a little down time, Trevor will get right back on it for his trip to Hawaii in January 2018 for the running of the HURT 100....Good Luck!
Thank you Trevor for taking the time to talk and thank you for the reminder to make sure we have fun out there on the trails.

He Did It! We have been following Jeff Hart for the past 5 months as he prepared for the Hardrcok 100 and he was kind enough to swing by Ogden to jump into Studio 78 to give us a solid recap of the race. For Jeff it was the pinnacle of his trail running life and as he puts the race into words- you can see and hear the emotion as he recaps the journey.
Thank you Jeff for taking us along and Congrats on not only the Hardrock finish but also the engagement to Jen. You are a class act and someone who continues to inspire. On behalf of TrailManners and our listeners- we are proud to call you our friend!

We have been keeping up with Jeff on his preparations and training for Hardrock and we are finally here. This show is the last time we get to talk to Jeff until after the race. We cannot thank him enough for taking us on this journey. Jeff -Good Luck and Thank you but most of all we all want you to "KISS IT".
