Hardrock 100

Trail Work Update

An intense rain storm this past Sunday afternoon did a lot of damage to the Ouray Bear Creek trail and the work schedule announced in Rick's July 1 message is being revised. Exactly where we will be working on both days has not yet been decided. Hopefully by early tomorrow (July 13) morning.

All who want to do trail work on Saturday (July 14) must be at the Silverton School gym at 6:00 am (except for those who opt for traveling directly to Sherman). All Hardrock trail workers must have long pants, work boots, and (leather) gloves. If you do not have these items you will not be allowed to do trail work on that day. Also, the monsoon rains have arrived and we recommend that you bring a rain jacket. So far the rains have been in the mid to late afternoon, but Saturday is forecast with light rain in the morning, thunderstorms in the afternoon.

Trail work for Sunday, as above, is presently undecided as to what time and where but there will be trail work. A lot of complications arose in the aftermath of the Ouray storm last Sunday afternoon.

Course Marking Schedule Updates

The Run Is On!

After consulting with various stakeholders including community members, the Bureau of Land Management, the U.S. Forest Service, and members of the Hardrock run committee, Hardrock Hundred Run Director Dale Garland announced today that the 2018 Hardrock Hundred will be held as planned on July 20th-22nd, 2018 on the published Hardrock clockwise course.
