2013 Arkansas Traveller 100: Interview with 71 Year Old Finisher Ian Maddieson

Enjoy our interview with 71 year old finisher of the Arkansas Traveller 100 (results summary), Ian Maddieson, of New Mexico.

Such a honor to talk with Ian. Something I had wanted to do for some time now.

Ian and I chat about the start of his ultra adventures back in 1980, his first Western States 100 in 1982, some of his life philosophies, thoughts on the growth of our sport,  his secret nutritional weapon, tips to support running at 71 years old…and oh yes, his journey of chasing cut-offs for the last 50 miles of his seventh finish of the Arkansas Traveller 100!

Ian, wisest Western States 100 finisher in 2010!
