2015 Hardrock 100
See how this year's epic race through Colorado's San Juan Mountains played out.
Long known as one of the toughest races in the U.S., the Hardrock 100 started Friday morning in Silverton, Colo., sending runners on a 100.5-mile course across the brutal terrain of the San Juan Mountains.
The men’s winner, the legendary Kilian Jornet of Spain, repeated as champion, finishing in a counterclockwise course-record of 23:28:10, nearly 2 hours and 17 minutes ahead of second-place finisher Mike Foote from Missoula, Mont. The women’s winner was New Zealand’s Anna Frost (8th overall, 28:22:47) who out-dueled three-time defending champion Darcy Piceu of Boulder, Colo.
Just one second shy of the 48-hour cutoff on Sunday morning, Colorado’s Bogie Dumitrescu became the last of the 123 runners to kiss the rock at the finish line—the final act before you’re an official finisher.
