Happy Tuesday, trail friends! Mark your calendars … in just three short days, our Broken Arrow Skyrace livestream will come online and you can watch trail racing at its finest from the comfort of your home.
Last week, the Austrian Alps played host to the World Mountain and Trail Running Championships. In this week’s featured piece, Doug Mayer brings us a dispatch from the trails above Innsbruck. And in the DFL, we question your race-course description.

I’m Dean Karnazes and I’ve run everywhere, even the South Pole. Despite all the miles and places I’ve run, I’ve never been able to find a pair of running glasses that I love.
That’s why I partnered with Method Seven to design and build the de facto champion of trail running eyewear. Our new UltraTrail glasses use advanced notch filtering, proprietary polarization technology, and bright, high-contrast lenses that let you see every rock, root, and obstacle in bright sun or dark shadow. With radically light, titanium frames, the glasses are so lightweight, comfortable, and crystal clear, I forget I’m wearing them!
Method Seven leads the way in trail running innovation.
