Explorations at the Extremes of Embodiment

Ian’s own path in the world of extreme endurance and exploration came through accident. His first steps as a trail-runner announced the end of his recovery from a near-fatal injury. Ian pursued rehabilitation through running as a health scientist, using his case to study the physiological, mental, and social transformations that occur in pursuit of ultra-endurance. This initial project only resulted in more questions and curiosity encouraging further research and exploration. Over the past decade, Ian has explored embodiment in trail and ultrarunning through observing, interviewing, and participating with runners around the world. Ian’s current work is a novel exploratory study of the community and culture that is formed and developed through sport. TheUltra Ethnography is one of the broadest and largest project on trail and ultrarunning to-date, with a sample of over 3,500 participants representing 49 countries and six continents. At Nerd Nite, Ian shares his story of exploration and experimentation in the embodiment of endurance.
