Two issues which might be all the time predictable in Colorado’s San Juan Mountains, although, are gnarly terrain and the monsoon season, and I don’t assume there’s a Hardrocker who escaped a good dousing of mountain steepness and storms. However, in the long run, Sebastien Chaigneau (post-race interview) and Darcy Africa (post-race interview) emerged as victors among the many rigors of competitors and Mom Nature. Alongside the best way, Seb additionally reset the counterclockwise path’s course document, which was beforehand 24:38 and held by the venerable Karl Meltzer (pre-race interview), who dropped this 12 months because of leg fatigue from racing the Western States 100 two weeks in the past.

2013 Hardrock 100 Males’s Race

Off the beginning line, France-born, Colorado-dwelling Joe Grant (pre-race interview) and Frenchman Seb ran collectively in Joe-leading-Seb-tucked-in-behind formation. Every time the pair encountered an assist station or path observers, they had been stated to have been chatting deeply in French. And, at occasions, one would watch for the opposite so they might proceed on collectively. The dynamic duo stayed paired till someplace earlier than the Ouray assist station at mile 56.6 the place Seb turned up first and assumed the lead for the remainder of the race. At Ouray, Joe adopted a brief distance behind however would in the end drop from the race by returning to Ouray due to a number of bodily illnesses.

As different males got here and went, Troy moved up slot-by-slot till he filed himself into his closing place on the Ouray assist station. From about Ouray to Telluride at mile 72, Troy ran at simply over 20 minutes behind Seb, making us all marvel if it will be a race for the win all the best way to the end. However Seb accelerated after Telluride and created a powerful hole over Troy.

The steadiness of the rostrum included one other Coloradan, Scott Jaime, who ran robust all day and throughout the top-five for nearly all the race. A few third of the best way across the Hardrock course loop, Scott stated he’d by no means felt so good that far alongside in a 100-mile race. Evidently, he continued to really feel nicely and he shifted into third place as others slipped again. The finishes of Seb, Troy, and Scott made this 12 months’s males’s race an all masters podium.

2013 Hardrock 100 Girls’s Race

Oh Diana Finkel, how fickle this race is for you. Coloradan Diana shot off the beginning line, discovering herself immediately within the high 10 general and the highest 5 by Grouse Gulch assist station at mile 42.1. The multiple-time winner even spent a while in third place general throughout the race’s second third. However when she arrived to Telluride at mile 72, she was starting to look wobbly. As in comparison with her working friends, her tempo dropped noticeably till mile 88 on the KT assist station the place she was slowed to a DNF halt. Finkel has a severe historical past with racing-related kidney points that took her out of the 2012 race and made her very sick after the 2010 race, however we don’t but know what in the end led to this 12 months’s drop.

Two different D’s as a substitute fill out the entrance of the ladies’s discipline, Darcy Africa of Colorado and Darla Askew of Oregon. Darcy ran because the second-place lady all day, till Diana dropped at mile 88 and she or he assumed the lead. Regardless that she gained the race, I don’t assume Darcy would name this her greatest day. As early as Grouse Gulch at mile 42.1, she famous troubles together with her uphill working and climbing. However Darcy is called a better and this race was no totally different; she turned up her effort within the final 20 miles and all through her return to the Silverton begin/end line.

And Darla appeared to be an excellent steam prepare chugging down the tracks simply behind Darcy all day. It also needs to be famous that Darla smiled the entire approach, I feel, a optimistic presence everywhere in the race course. That is Darla’s second end and a two hour, 43-minute enchancment over her third-place end final 12 months, on what most Hardrockers name the more durable, counterclockwise path.
