Podcasts Featuring Ultrarunners with Local Ties for Your Weekend Long Run

Are you looking for a new podcast for your weekend long run while burning off a few extra Thanksgiving calories? Two recent ultrarunning-related podcasts featured interviews with people with Massachusetts ties.

The first podcast has been available for a few weeks. Originally published on Nov. 2, Elevation Trail host Gary David, a resident of Stow, Mass., interviewed Patrick Caron, the 19-year-old phenom from Needham, Mass., who has taken the in-state and regional ultrarunning scene by storm since making his debut at the 2015 TARC Fall Classic. David – who notably finished third in the 50K at this year’s TARC Fall Classic – interviewed Caron about his early days in running, his rise into the ultra scene, and his recent sub-15-hour 100-mile performance at the Ghost Train 100.

Liz Canty, a former resident of Hudson, Mass., was the second-place female finisher in the 100K at the 2016 TARC 100. Now living in Huntsville, Ala., Canty was interviewed on the latest episode of East Coast Trail & Ultra Podcast. File Photo/MassUltra.

The Elevation Trail podcast lasts about 90 minutes and can be heard here.

The second podcast was posted just this Monday. Liz Canty, a former resident of Hudson, Mass., who moved to Huntsville, Ala., earlier this year is the second featured interview on the Nov. 21 episode of the East Coast Trail & Ultra Podcast. Canty, 25, was the women’s champion and fourth overall at the Dizzy 50s 50K on Nov. 19 in Huntsville, and she followed it up the next day by running the Flying Monkey Marathon in Nashville, Tenn. Canty returned to Massachusetts to race recently, placing fourth overall and taking second-place female honors in the 100K race at the TARC 100 in October.

The East Coast Trail & Ultra Podcast lasts about an hour, and Canty’s interview lasts about 15 minutes.

Be advised that the East Coast Trail & Ultra Podcast includes some foul language. The Elevation Trail podcast does not.

    1. DFL Ultrarunning Abruptly stopped with the passing of Eric Sherman. Its still worth going through the back episodes though for some choice interviews with the likes of Scott Traer, Katzman and McDuffie.


      1. Yeah. I was just trying to point out a few recent new ones in this case that people may not have come across. I just heard that Ten Junk Miles referenced TARC on the latest podcast. I added that one to my queue to listen to soon.
