Taking place along the western edge of the Paunsaugunt Plateau in Bryce Canyon National Park, the Bryce Canyon 100 offered 100-mile, 50-mile, 50K and half-marathon options for ultrarunners wanting to take in the beauty of southern Utah. Most of the race was run at elevations exceeding 8,000 feet, adding an additional layer of challenge

The overall 100-mile winner was Mark Hammond of Salt Lake City, who finished in 19:30:25. Riva Johnson of Bend, Oregon was top female (and seventh overall) in a time of 23:57:55.
