The Intelligent Racer Podcast: Adventure Racing | Triathlons | Ultras

missing image

The Intelligent Racer looks to educate and entertain the endurance racing community through discussions with racing professionals and elite age groupers. By focusing on some of the world’s most interesting & challenging races and by interviewing professional athletes and elite age groupers competing in those races, every athlete can learn insightful lessons, becoming a more Intelligent Racer. Our focus is not on a specific endurance racing format, but instead we cover many formats including: Adventure Races, Triathlons and Ultra distance events. Lessons can be learned and applied across race formats, so we don’t wish to limit ourselves. Whether it is swimming, cycling, running or some other physical activity, if it’s in an endurance distance race, we are interested and we cover it.
