The Top 5 Is Now a (Running) Game Show!
Play • 54 min
For more than a year now, we have been producing our Top 5 podcast, which explores what we feel are the five most important stories of the week. As a new year’s resolution, we challenged ourselves to take the concept of the weekly round-up, or “yesterday’s news tomorrow,” and make it a bit more compelling.

And so, behold,  The XC Top 5 Show, the competition that pits two running nerds against each other in order to score meaningless points!

Each week, two of our contributors or special guests face off, dissecting five stories from the week in the world of distance running and track and field. They offer their best and hottest takes to judge Michael Doyle, who rewards them in points. The panelist with the deepest knowledge and hottest takes will emerge from this five-lap sprint of ideas the victor. The prize? We give them the mic atop the podium to tell us something important or exciting they want to share with you. And seven days of bragging rights, of course.

We’ll be pushing this show out both as a podcast on The XC’s feed, and as a video on our YouTube and IGTV channels, and be sure to follow us on Twitter for our weekly schedule.
