You anonymously stand by it? Isn't that an oxymoron? ;-)

How many women would you estimate participate in trail running today as opposed to earlier years?

Trail Running stars of today would include our Teva US Mountain Running Team members, USATF National Trail Champions (50M, 50Km, 10Km), USATF mountain and ultra runners of the year, winners of the "top" races such as Western States 100, Pikes Peak Marathon, Mount Washington, etc. My preliminary list would include women sub ultra: Anita Ortiz, Erica Larson, Laura Haefeli, Lisa Isom, Kelli Lusk. Men: Simon Gutierrez, Paul Low, up-and-comer Eric Blake, masters Tom Borschel, Bernie Boettcher, Andy Ames. Ultra Scott Jurek, Chad Ricklefs, Tim Tweitmeyer, Paul DeWitt, Dave Mackey, Matt Carpenter, Ian Torrence...Nikki Kimball (sub ultra as well), Anne Riddle, Connie Gardner, Ann Heaslett, Ann Trason. These are just a few of our stars.

there are championships in trail racing from both the RRCA and USATF. Typically USATF trail championships offer prize money such as the White River 50 Miler, the Headlands 50km, the Gore-Tex USA 10Km Trail Championships, the US Mountain Running Championships. Other incentives that the MUT council looks for in USATF championship-caliber races are: lodging support to top competitors, comp entries.

Charlie -

Thanks for your question. Just about every trail running organization has their own "nationals" or "world championship". Based on the finishing times, I think the USATF and RRCA sponsored races seem to be the toughest nationals, with the USATF being the toughest. I assure you, winning one means exactly nothing to the other. ;oP

Personally, I chose the RRCA 50k Nationals more for the incredible course (brutal tour of the Tahoe Rim Trail) and knowing that the Tahoe Mountain Milers will organize a great race and attract some top-notch racers. You should sign up!

So which races are the true "Nationals"? It looks like each of these orgs have a national US championship race of some sort. Scott, I see you're signed up for the RRCA Nationals. Do you consider that the toughest?

Nancy, if he won would he be the national champion, or would he need to hold all titles like Boxing?

Who are the stars of trail running today? Are they TV reayd? I would be curious to her opinion, both male and female.
