Each week, two of our contributors or special guests face off in The XC's Top 5 Running Show, dissecting five stories from the week in the world of distance running and track and field. They offer their best and hottest takes to the host, 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. This week panelists Alex Cyr and Justin Horneker break down: Tokyo's organizing committee chairman resigns The state of North America's Olympic Trials Nike's new too-good-to-be-true Dragonfly track spike, and two jaw-dropping times run in them And, finally, we crown the king and queen of the 2021 indoor track season, so far We’ll be pushing this show out both as a podcast on The XC’s feed each Monday, and as a video on our YouTube and IGTV channels, at around 7 p.m. ET. So be sure to follow us @thexcorg and subscribe to our YouTube channel.
