    Western States 100-Mile Endurance Run is this Weekend

    The Western States website is here, Western States Endurance Run .

    The Western States ® 100-Mile Endurance Run is the world’s oldest 100 mile trail race. The Run starts in Olympic Valley, California, near the site of the 1960 Winter Olympics, and ends 100.2 miles later in Auburn, California. In the decades since its inception in 1974, Western States has come to represent one of the ultimate endurance tests in the world.

    Traversing the traditional lands of the Nisenan, Washoe, and other neighboring Indigenous Peoples, the Western States Trail climbs more than 18,000 feet and descends nearly 23,000 feet before runners reach the finish at Placer High School in Auburn. In the miles between Olympic Valley and Auburn, runners experience the majestic high country of Emigrant Pass and the Granite Chief Wilderness, the crucible of the canyons of the California gold country, a memorable crossing of the ice cold waters of the Middle Fork of the American River, and finally the historic reddish brown trails that led many travelers, including gold prospectors, to Auburn.
    100.2 miles, 30 hours time limit. The start is at ~6200 feet elevation and the finish is at ~1240 feet, with lots of climbing in between. Entries are capped at ~450, and runners are chosen by lottery from among those who complete qualifying events. Among 2022 entrants, the only unrepresented continent is Antarctica.
