We were made aware that runner Xavier Thevenard was given aid outside of an aid station. After careful consideration, investigation of the facts, and conversations with the affected parties, it was confirmed that Xavier was met at a roadside two miles outside of Ouray and given ice and water. The decision has regrettably been made to disqualify Xavier from this year's Hardrock. Our rules protect the integrity of Hardrock and the values of fairness and sportsmanship for all participants. While the violation was clear and substantive, we do not feel it was made with malicious intent, and invite Xavier to join the lottery for future Hardrocks.


A week ago, the downpour that caused a temporary closure of Highway 550 also damaged the Ouray Bear Creek trail. The trail has been and remains officially closed to the public. Hardrock's use of this key portion of our course was in doubt, and a rush of contingency plans had been designed.

Less than an hour ago, a conference call concluded with USFS representatives regarding Hardrock using the Bear Creek trail. They have APPROVED our use of the Bear Creek trail for the period of time it takes for our runners to move through the area between Ouray and Engineer Pass.

We will have a limited crew of highly experienced trail workers on the trail this week to make emergency repairs.

This does NOT mean that the trail is open to the general public, or to Hardrock runners any time except during the run. Please respect the closure and add to the goodwill Hardrock has built with the forest service that has helped this approval take place.

So Many Thanks to Dale Garland, Megan Finnesy, Rick Trujillo and Charlie Thorn for doing all that you did to make this happen!!

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.
