The Wasatch Front 100 Endurance Run has been ‘running’ since 1980, making it the oldest continuous 100 mile race in the country. ‘Wasatch,’ as the race is affectionately known, has spawned trail runners all over Ogden, as they train for arguably the toughest 100 mile event in the world. It was an honor for John and Brandon from the Banyan Collective to sit down with Wasatch organizers John Grobben, Steve Baugh and Phil Lowry and speak with them about the early days of Wasatch and how the race has evolved over the years to become the Wasatch 100 we know and love today. You know what; you’re going to learn the Wasatch 100 is not that different today than it was 35 years ago.
In this special episode of Mr. Goodyear’s Neighborhood, we discuss with John, Steve and Phil how Wasatch has remained true to its origins and continues to be one of the premier trail running events on the race calendar.
