2013 Run Rabbit Run 100 Live Coverage

The Hares race of this year’s Run Rabbit Run 100 kicks off at noon MDT on Friday, September 13. As you might expect, we’ll be livecasting the event on iRunFar’s Twitter feed. We’ll also be combining our twitter feed with other possible news sources in the CoverItLive window below. [Sorry, no reader comments for this one. It’s been a long season and our volunteer moderators need a break!]

Here are a couple resources to help you follow the race:

Thanks to Hoka One One for sponsoring our coverage of this year’s Run Rabbit Run 100.

    • Weide,

      my grandfather used to hear football through the radio.

      Now, I "hear" about Western States or UTMB, through Irunfar.

      See you.

  • Hare/Tortoise ... Can someone summarize the difference other than the time cut (30 vs. 36 hours)? For example, if you read the UTMB site on its face only the Hare race is a qualifier, so something more than elite vs. non-elite must be involved?

    • Pacers are allowed in the tortoise race, but not in the hare race.

  • Have any idea how the storms that are currently flooding out the Boulder area may have impacted the RRR course?

    • The final two miles sure look good. :-) No reports at all of their being issues with the course. Might be a bit soft, but that's it.

  • My bro, Dane Mitchell, is trying to make it from Boulder today. Any idea if A) it's even possible or B) how the travel is going for others? Just wanted to see if there are other racers showing up from that area and if I can give him a heads up on what to expect.

    • callie,

      There are some significant road closures in the Front Range area, including almost all of the roads in Boulder. I know a couple Boulder-based runners made it out and over to Steamboat yesterday before so many road closures were instigated. I have no knowledge about people traveling today. However, conditions are quite severe in Boulder and its environs. As Boulder emergency personnel are saying, air on the side of caution and put safety first. Best to your brother.

  • Were getting close to the part in the night where Karl wears all black, runs in stealth mode skipping aid stations, then hours later everyone is wanting to know "WHERE THE HELL IS KARL?".

    Like I said last year: Mid day/Afternoon start, running through the night, with NO pacers allowed-- This race is meant for Meltzer. Give em hell Karl!

  • Hey, why did you disable reader comments?

    • In order to have reader comments each comment needs to be approved (that's part of the 3rd-party live coverage system) and that means moderators for the full race. I didn't want to ask the volunteer moderators to help out at a third 100 miler in a month.

      Fortunately, one can still comment... in, well, the comment section here.

    • Totally agreed on this one - the hundreds/thousands of comments along the lines of 'how's AK doing', 'did AK drop' get kinda old after awhile. Particularly for events he never entered...

      I jest! (sort of). The clean feed is so much... ...cleaner

      • Okay, but I say I Run Far should open comments to include a more critical range of discourse.
