Jerry Turk shares his stories of what the running scene is like in England, and New England and discusses the Ultra Culture of the Hell Gate 100k. Jerry is an accomplished runner, having completed the Grand Slam of Ultra Running as well as finishing the grueling Western States qualifier Hellgate 100k 16 times.

He also is the Race Director for Bimblers Bluff 50K, the Bimblers Bash 10kish, race and a crucial part of the Running community.

The CULTRA trail running podcast is a place where we can get together and discuss all the fun shit that happens on the trails, that most normal people don’t care about. CULTRA’s headquarters is located in the belly of the beast coast, Glastonbury Connecticut, so most of our stories involve North East Trail running or North East Trail runners.

The language used in this show is explicit and raw like the trails we run on, so don’t listen to this with your kids.

We don’t have sponsors at this point, instead we like to recognize the folks that support us. This week we recognize Race Director Amy Rusiecki. Amy is the Race Director for Vermont 100 as well as a few races in Western Mass.

Thank you all so much for your support.
