Ben Gibbard loves trail running! In fact, he loves it so much that he’s appearing in a short film for sports equipment manufacturer Salomon that’s all about how much he loves trail running. He also loves it so much that he recently hired runner Nick Triolo as a “Trail Coordinator” to find places for him to run while on tour. Watch the full video, filmed during Death Cab For Cutie’s 2015 US Tour, below.
Ben Gibbard also recently completed his first 100-miler. Congrats Ben!
First 100 miler in the books! I had an utterly amazing, life changing experience this weekend running the Cascade Crest 100. There were highs and lows but I kept putting one foot in front of the other until I arrived back in Easton WA in 25:18:28. I am completely indebted to my phenomenal crew @racheldemy, @sarahmjurado and @grimdetermination as well as my pacers @gretchen_walla and @garyrobbins. I could not have done it without you guys. Thank you!!! Photo by @ethannewberry.
