In his post-Leadville blog, Nick Clark has produced a candid piece of writing craft. The Pearl Izumi runner beautifully captures the essence of the race from a front- runners’ viewpoint, and perfectly depicts the race from inside the ‘race-bubble’…

In there, Nick also touches on the issues that the US’ premier 100-miler faces, from an organisational and experience viewpoint – something which the Colorado man felt was palpable on the day. The solution? Nick himself.

At least he appears to offer his services within the first few paragraphs, “it is quite apparent to me that somebody who understands ultrarunning needs to be put back in charge of the run series. I’m available.” – and if I were the Leadville Series organiser I think I might be giving Mr.Clark a call ASAP!
