No they don’t actually. The only time I’ve been legit tested (at a USADA/WADa enforced level) was after winning the Pikes Peak ascent when it was the WMRA world champs. Otherwise all other “tests” (think like ITRA QUARTZ) are a joke in my experience. I mean I yeah a few guys have been caught at UTMB/Comrades over the years, but compared to road marathons and track events the testing is super lax in ultra-trail

Did not know the testing was so limited. You'd think the fact that the sport is international in nature and "limited" to specific large events that they'd manage to test at these large events.
I agree actual performance enhancers are what needs to be focused on. People getting tripped by tainted CBD gummies is kind of lame and there's no way it helps that much.
They do test extensively at the real competitive events though
Sage, I am trying to reach out through Linked-in (from A.S). can you pick me up please. i'd like to get your opinion on something. Thanks a lot.
