2013 Hardrock 100 Live Coverage

Hardrock 100The 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.

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!

    Karl with blown quads has to drop, you know he's bummed, and there he is with a huge smile on his face waiting for Seb. Classy.

    i have run UTMB and i plan to run the HR100, if i would be lucky in the draw, so it would be very interesting for me to know how Seb compares the HR route to UTMB route.

    1. gontxal

      HR you can compare to Ronda del Cims and Diagonale des Fous.

      UTMB is a Little bit "easier",but more elite runners invited,so is faster

        thanks gontxal

        I run ronda 3 week ago so i have a good picture of the route.

        One question: at Ronda, there were sections, where there was no visible trail

        and the runner had to create his own trail/path, following the organization's flags, to climb up to a summit or descend down to a valley. Are there such sections at HR ?

    I had what was apparently the same issue pop up 15 miles into a run in the mountains last week. Scared the hell out of me. By mile 30 it was dark red as wine. When I was home it looked fine. Doctor did some tests at the hospital and wasn't concerned. I've had no issues since.

    Hey Bryon,

    Thanks for all u do. I'm a poor vet student who doesn't hardly ever get to run, but all the coverage and articles on iRunfar keep me inspired and motivated for a time when I can actually put in some more miles. I gave 5 bucks, it's all I can spare right now. Thanks again!
