Is Ultrarunning on the Decline?

Wrote a little article about the subject over here. Check it out.

  1. The problem with keying off "Leadville 100" is that it unfortunately collides with the MTB race of the same name. BTR book came out in 2009, the same year as Lance ignited the popularity of the MTB race and put it on the map. Leipheimer took down the record the following year which I remember drawing a lot of attention as well. I suspect that the ultimate indicator of ultrarunning popularity would be the entrant data held by ultrasignup. My gut feeling is that the total number of runners starting ultra's in 2016 continues to grow but that this may not be so evident anymore because there are so many races + informal FA's these days.

  2. I read this post on your other blog. I think several high-quality blogs still are thriving; some just withered on the vine or the blogger lost interest. I invite you to check out and add mine to your blog roll if you like, TheRunnersTrip.com. thanks!

  4. Very interesting, as a competitve runner, blogger and race director I've wondered the same thing. Overall for my sub-ultras numbers have plateaued in all but the more popular races but my ultras have more runners. As for blogging, I've had lots k ideas but I've been too busy organizing 200 mile races to blog much- or race as much. But I always try to do race reports. Http://www.wilddefined.com

  7. Keep on running KM; you have inspired me to get out and do some miles again. Thought I was getting to old to be competitive; however reading your stories makes my heart race jump and my feet want to move. I shall let you know if I succeed or just buy a pair of shoes.....
