Results from the 2012 Hardrock 100.

By on July 14, 2012 | 27 comments

Hardrock 100Great weather (aside from some storms between miles 20 and 40) lead to fast times, including the third and fourth fastest times in race history with Hal Koerner winning the men’s race after holding off a late charge by Joe Grant.

Diana Finkel dominated the women’s race for 87 miles before withdrawing for health reasons (she’s fine). That opened the door for ever-steady Darcy Africa to grab the women’s win.

In total, 98 runners (including 11 women) of the 140 starters finished for a 70.7 finishing percentage.
