The 2013 Hardrock 100 begins at 6 am MDT on Friday, July 12, as 140 runners take off from Silverton, Colorado for a journey through the San Juan Mountains. While labeled a “run” rather than a “race,” there’ll no doubt be hot competition for both the men’s and women’s titles, so we’ll be bringing you race updates and commentary from the front of the pack all day… and night… and the next day. As usual, we’ll be livecasting the event on iRunFar’s Twitter feed; however, we’ll also be combining our Twitter feed with other news sources in the below CoverItLive window.
Thanks to race sponsor Hypoxico, maker of altitude training systems (which lowland-living Hal Koerner used before winning last year’s Hardrock), for supporting our coverage of the 2013 Hardrock 100!
Note: Due to Hardrock’s temporal length, we’ll not be hosting a discussion with CoverItLive itself. However, we encourage you to discuss the race at length in the comments section!
