The Tracksmith Army Fight Back
Play • 44 min
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 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 @thexcorg

Our Top 5 topics this week include:

Beloved brand Tracksmith gets publicly criticized, and running Twitter responds in force

Will North American marathon great Cam Levins qualify for the Tokyo Olympics?

An Olympic gold medallist could get banned eight years for being MIA; is the "whereabouts" rule fair?

Is this Florida teen the next Usain Bolt?

What would you rather: train for a 100-miler or an Ironman?

Hosts: Alex Cyr, Andrew Cruickshank, Michael Doyle
