Hardrock 2019 Snowpack & Avalanche Monitoring

The Hardrock Hundred Endurance Run is currently monitoring the snowpack conditions within the San Juan Mountains in the areas that the Hardrock Hundred Endurance Run takes place.

The decision of whether the yearly snowpack conditions will allow the Hardrock Hundred Endurance Run to be held or force it to be canceled is based on the Snow Water Equivalent (SWE) measured at the Red Mountain Pass SNOTEL site. This year we are also evaluating the impact that numerous avalanches have had on the course.

Should the SWE be equal to or less than 23" on June 1st of this year and the impact of those avalanches can be mitigated safely by July, then the 2019 Hardrock Hundred Endurance Run will take place.

If the SWE is greater than 23" on June 1st of this year and/or avalanche impact is still questionable, then a decision will be made by the Hardrock Hundred Endurance Run management as to whether or not the 2019 Hardrock Hundred Endurance Run will be held.

We would anticipate that a final decision on the 2019 run will be made within the first 2 weeks of June.

Hardrock Medical Symposium

Join us for the 2nd annual Hardrock Medical Symposium, a full day of professional medical education held Thursday, the day before the run's start. For 2019, we have put together another great event with national level speakers and great content for aid station medical volunteers as well other professionals interested in race & endurance medicine.

Additionally, we have partnered with the American Academy of Emergency Medicine to accredit the event for 7 AMA PRA Category 1 credits. CME credit is available to all attendees, regardless of medical specialty. This is in addition to CE credits for EMS professionals, as was offered last year.
