July 13-15, 2012
Dry trails and mostly dry weather greeted the 140 runners who came from 25 states, Germany, Japan Singapore, the United Kingdom and Canada to run at the 2012 Hardrock. These runners ranged from age 22 to 72 years of age. The conditions helped 98 (70%) of the 2012 field to finish this year's run and kiss the legendary hardrock in Silverton. The first 3 male finishers all finished their second Hardrock in impressive fashion, highlighted by Hal Koerner's time of 24 hours and 50 minutes, which bettered the current course best by over 27 minutes and was the 3rd fastest time ever run at Hardrock. It was also a personal improvement for Hal at Hardrock by over 6 hours! Hal was followed closely by second time finishers Joe Grant and Dakota Jones, both of whom finished within an hour of Hal. Darcy Africa (29 hours, 29 minutes) returned to Hardrock for the 3rd time and showed that the 3rd time was the charm as she led all female finishers. Finishing behind Darcy were Rhonda Claridge and Darla Askew.
Deb Pero won the "Caboose Award" as the final finisher under the 48 hour cutoff. She also became the oldest woman to finish Hardrock.
- Cory Johnson, Lance Johnson, Ricky Denesik, Liz Bauer, David Coblentz and Ted Mahon all completed their 5th Hardrock. Finishing 5 Hardrocks is a major milestone for our event.
- Leo Lloyd, Hardrock's Medical and Emergency Services Director, was awarded Hardrock's "Mother Lode" Award as the outstanding volunteer of the year.
