“Bus Run Bus”

One of the last projects that Rickey Gates did last year was putting on a running trip with a bunch of strangers on a bus. Yep, this project consisted of 25 people piling into a green bus together and traveling, discovering and running their way across the U.S.’s western states.

We leave you with this video which recaps the whole experience–and, just like almost everything Rickey does, it’s definitely worth a watch.

What to read:

Last year, we talked about the concept of the “Backyard Ultra” race. Who would’ve known that in 2020, athletes across the world would be partaking out of necessity. Last Saturday, more than 60 people from all over the world started the “Quarantine Backyard Ultra”. The winner? None other than Mike Wardian, who with this race added yet another unique result to his lengthy resume.

What to listen to:

This week, we’d like to share an interview with one of the most famous runners in our sport: Anton Krupicka. Even though he hasn’t raced for a while due to different reasons, Anton is still a very iconic figure in our sport. In this podcast, he talks about a lot things: some related to sports and running, but also touches on topics related to his current life (coronavirus included.)
