Recently, our friend and trail culture advocate, Bob Crowley, was appointed as President of ITRA, International Trail Running Association. Bob helps The Nation understand more about this little known organization that we SHOULD know about and support. ITRA’s values mirror our shared values of authenticity, humility, fair play, respect, solitary, and teamwork. Not only can it represent our collective voice, but can help race directors and individuals alike. The basic membership is free so please sign up to strengthen our voice and protect our culture.
