Leadville 100 and Corporate Manhandling of Ultrarunning

P1470139Welcome back to Elevation Trail.  This episode is produced here, LIVE, in Boulder Colorado from a local brewery (so excuse the slurring).  Today we talk about the growth and corporate management of the Leadville race series, specifically the Leadville 100 Trail Run.  Where are we going with this sport?  Is money helping or hurting our experience?  Gary discusses his new project and his relationship with his new little friend, Little Nicky.  Join us and please offer up your opinions on some of the topics we cover.  Thanks!
