On November 15th, the North Face Endurance Challenge hosted us for a Clean Sport panel with elite trail athletes Rob Krar and Dylan Bowman, track athlete and prior Clean Sport Collective Podcast guest Alysia Montaño, and co-host Kara Goucher.
With this panel, it is fascinating to hear the differences in testing and clean sport culture across road, trail and track racing.
Alysia discusses her recent medal upgrade experience in Doha. Dylan and Rob provide insight into the trail community and its current rudimentary approach to drug testing. Kara discusses why the Salazar ban was such a landmark decision, and all of the athletes give their perspectives on what should come next for athletes, the governing bodies, brands, events, and the fans.
Thank you to the North Face Endurance Challenge for hosting us. As a brand and event that has signed the Clean Sport pledge, we appreciate your leadership in promoting a better culture for all athletes.
