HARDROCK NEWS: August 27, 2016

Greetings from rainy Durango, Colorado. The Hardrock Hundred board of directors had our fall meeting on Saturday August 27th. We have some news, and some policy changes to announce:

  • The window for Hardrock 2017 applications will be October 16th through November 20th on Ultrasignup. The selection date will be December 3rd.
  • The 2017 starting field will consist of 145 runners. The board has decided that the previous increase from 140 to 152 was adversely affecting both the quality and management of the event; partially rolling back our starting field is a change that should mitigate that effect. As a result, the entrants selected in each category will be: 33 "veterans", 45 "nevers", and 67 "else".
  • There have been no changes-additions or deletions-to the qualifying list of races for the 2017 Hardrock Hundred.
