I love the Hawk 100, actually all the distances, and would love to help spread the word about their awesome race. This one is in my home state and I’ve personally ran the trail marathon, 50 mile, and 100 mile at their event and had a blast doing so. The course is actually covered in trees for 90% of it, it’s a rolling style course with good hard pack dirt, and a bit of a rocky factor that isn’t loose, isn’t big, but I think just right. Today my quest and plea to you all, is to come and do the 100 miler. We need to get at least 100 100 mile finishers across the line to get them to become a Western States qualifier. Can you help us out?
