He shares: "I am excited and proud to be the caretaker of the Hardrock Hundred's iconic course"

Hardrock Lottery changes for 2023

For the 2023 Hardrock Hundred, we will be consolidating the “Else” and “Veteran” lottery pools into a single “Finishers” lottery pool. This change will be in effect for the lottery for the 2023 Hardrock, to be held in December of this year. The “Never Finished” lottery pool will be unchanged. The lottery for the new “Finishers” pool will be conducted using the ticket algorithm for the previous “Else” lottery.

We will continue the 2022 policy of having separate lotteries for men and women, so this two-lottery structure is actually four lotteries: “Men Never Finished”, “Men Finishers”, Women Never Finished”, and “Women Finishers”.

This change is being made to strike a better balance between welcoming new runners to Hardrock and maintaining the “Hardrock Family” aspect of the run. The effect on applicant’s chances of being selected depends on the specific allocation of slots between the lottery pools, which is still to be determined. Historically, applicants in the Veteran pool with five finishes have had a much higher chance of getting in than applicants in the Else pool with four finishes. This change will smooth that transition.
