The 2016 Hardrock 100 starts in downtown Silverton, Colorado at 6 a.m. MDT on Friday, July 15th. From there, 152 runners will have 48 hours to traverse the 100 miles and 33,000′ of gain in a clockwise-loop back to Silverton, where they’ll kiss the rock to stop the clock. For such a small race, the front of both the women’s and men’s fields is stacked with international talent.
We’ll be livecasting the event on iRunFar’s Twitter feed. We’ll also be combining our Twitter feed with other possible news sources and encouraging all of you to join the discussion in the CoverItLive window below. We also have a full news stream without comments for those who prefer a clean interface.
