Western States 100 logoThe Western States 100 is the most widely covered ultramarathon in North America… by a long shot. Rather than bore you with yet another report on the race or some lame photos from our iPhone, we’re gathering the best Western States coverage from around the internet to share with you. Please feel free to note additional resources in a comment.

While we’re not writing a Western States race report, we did put together a pretty tremendous (in our opinion) set of interviews before and after the race. Check out our Western States 100 Index for all of those interviews and additional iRunFar coverage of this and other Western States 100s. OK, ok, to whet your appetite for our coverage, our two most popular interviews are post-race chats with Geoff Roes and Anton Krupicka.

Top Competitors Race Reports


  • Meghan Arbogast (2nd) – Meghan reports on “finally getting it.”
  • Annette Bednosky (8th) – Former Western States champ talking about running within her training.
  • Devon Crosby-Helms (DNF) – Devon was pulled from the course at Michigan Bluff. Her story’s still worth reading.
