Thanks to the whole Board of Directors and our host board member Blake Wood, our 2014 Lottery was a hoot and went without a wrinkle. The starter list will be updated on Ultrasignup in the next few days. See Hardrock 100 Entrant List on Ultrasignup for the list once it is ready.
In the meantime, see the links below for a snapshots of the starters list and waitlists! That is the posterboard with the actual physical tickets taped in place. Did you doubt that we actually draw tickets??
Selected entrants will be notified by Ultrasignup and will need to accept their starting slot. At that point you will be billed for the entry fee.
July 12-14, 2013
The weather presented challenges this year, whether it was the threat of fire before our run or the intermittent thunderstorms that runners had to deal with throughout the run. In the end, we had a very successful event as runners from 26 states, Japan, Germany, Austria, France and Canada toed the line to challenge themselves in the San Juans. These runners ranged from age 25 to 73 years of age. The rain didn't stop 104 (74%) of the 2013 field from finishing this year's run and kiss the legendary hardrock in Silverton. The male finishers were led by Sebastien Chaigneau from France, who ran the second fastest time ever run at Hardrock (24 hours and 25 minutes). This was the first time that Sebastien has run Hardrock! Sebastien was followed by second time finisher Troy Howard (Golden, CO-25 hours, 20 minutes) and Scott Jaime (Highlands Ranch, CO-26 hours, 38 minutes), who finished his 7th Hardrock, Boulder, CO based Darcy Africa successfully defended her women's title (29 hours,54 minutes) as she finished her 4th Hardrock. Darcy's effort was good for 9th place overall. Finishing behind Darcy were Darla Askew (Bend, OR-31 hours and 9 minutes) and Betsy Nye (Truckee, CA- 36 hours and 46 minutes). This was Betsy's 12th Hardrock finish.
Perhaps the loudest cheers were reserved for Hardrock's final finisher for 2013. Claire Ketteler (Newbury, NH) finished her tour of the San Juans in 47 hours, 59 minutes and 44 seconds meaning she finished with 16 seconds to spare before the 48 hour cut off!! Standing at the finish line to cheer Claire to her finish were both this year's youngest finisher, 25 year old (Nick Coury (Silverton, CO-25 hours, 50 minutes) and 73 year old Hans Dieter Weisshaar ( Landwehrhagen, GER-47 hours, 34 minutes), who had just finished his 8th Hardrock!
- Jean Francois Geiss (Lyon, France), Greg Hartman Del Norte, CO), Howie Stern (Mammoth Springs, CA) , Neal Taylor (Manitou Springs, CO), Mike Burke (Portland, OR), Daniel Benhammou (Frisco, CO) and Jon Teisher (Manitou Springs, CO) all completed their 5th Hardrock. Finishing 5 Hardrocks is a major milestone for our event.
- Even more impressive was Dennis Drey (Albuquerque, NM) garnering his 10th Hardrock finish. But wait . . . Mark Heaphy (Pole Bridge, MT) bested all of them by completing his 15th Hardrock!
- Rodger Wrublik, owner of the Wyman Hotel and Silverton run organizer, was awarded Hardrock's "Mother Lode" Award as the outstanding volunteer of the year.
- The 2014 Hardrock will be held on July 11-13 2014. Applications will be available on October 1, 2013. Stay tuned for more details on how you can become a Hardrocker!
