Popular Media Articles

- Yiannis Kouros -


The Course Guide is a repository of knowledge about mountain, ultra, and trail-running, from research in all disciplines to historical accounts, from indigenous depictions of ultrarunning to popular media interpretations and understandings of the sport. The Course Guide includes references and links (when possible) to relevant information*. This page also includes material exploring anthropology and sociology of sport. Please, feel free to suggest additions (in any language)!

*The reference lists are in no way exhaustive of all literature and media about ultrarunning and related topics. The lists will be updated on a continual basis with both new and past publications. Further, the majority of popular media articles are fairly new and represent only a small sample of the growing volume of ultrarunning material.
