The hardest 100 mile race in the world, so people say, is going down this weekend, who's following it here besides me? You cannot argue the reputation, 67,900' of elevation change, all above 10,000', topping out above 14k'!
I will be checking in on Joe Grant, who never fails to keep people on their toes with his epic races and solo runs- his crew and pacers are stellar, hopefully they keep him on course and moving strong. Top 3 for Joe?
BPL's own Eric Payne is also stepping into that meat grinder that is Hardrock, so follow him on the race feed this weekend, shoot him a PM, he'd appreciate the encouragement.
It is crazy to think that the fastest runner at Hardrock, likely Dakota Jones, will still be on course almost double the amount of time as Tim Olson's record setting run at Western States. The middle and back of the packers even moreso. Respect.
