Listen to this Interview of Ann Trason

February 13, 2014 By: John Blue Category: General Running News, Trails, Ultrarunning

sprintIf you can think of any ultrarunners who have enjoyed the level of domination that Ann Trason experienced at her prime, please share because I cannot think of any.

She won the Western States 100 an astonishing fourteen times.

She won the Comrades Marathon (South Africa) and turned around and won Western States a couple weeks later–twice (96 and 97)

While many lesser runners have gone on to make money with endorsements and public speaking events, Trason has largely avoided the public eye. For this reason, this interview of Trason on Ultrarunner Podcast is a real treat.

  1. Thanks John. I got to speak to one of my idols that day, and I certainly never thought it’d be her. Big thanks to Ann for making herself available to the greater MUT scene.

    I don’t know her at all (other than by reputation) and found her to be completely charming in the interview.
