|Subject: ||Why do average ultrarunners get shoe sponsors and nataional class marathoners dont?|
Here is a perfect example. I ran my first 50 miler yesterday at Leona Divide and noticed that most of the top guys all had shoe sponsors. This one guy named Dominic had a New Balance singlet on and I was shocked NB would sponsor a ultra runner. Anyways he lost the race by almost an hour and when I went home I looked him up and his other results are good but not great. What gives?
Here is his blog http://dominicgrossman.blogspot.com/
Why are shoe companies to eager to sponsor runners in a tiny fringe sport like ultrarunning compared to fast road and track runners?
