[Editor’s Note: While we’ll continue to provide updates here through Sunday morning’s award’s ceremony, you can get a quick recap of what happened at the front of this year’s Hardrock field in our 2021 Hardrock 100 results article.]
The 2021 Hardrock 100 begins in downtown Silverton, Colorado at 6 a.m. U.S. Mountain Daylight Time on Friday, July 16. From there, 146 runners will have 48 hours to traverse the 100 miles and 33,000-plus feet of gain in this year’s counterclockwise loop back to Silverton, where they’ll kiss the rock to stop the clock.
For such a small event, there’ll be some exciting action at the front of the men’s and women’s races. We’ll be livecasting the event over on iRunFar’s Twitter feed with text and photo reports from all over the course. We’ll also be combining our Twitter feed with other possible news sources in the combined feed below.
A special thanks to Kailas for making our coverage of this year’s Hardrock 100 possible!
