HARDROCK 100 MILES 2020 CANCELLED: OFFICIAL COMMUNICATION

 

 

Over the past two months, the Board of Directors and Run Committee completed a thorough decision-making process. This process included consultations with key officials within the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), the U.S. Forest Service (USFS), public health departments and the local communities that support Hardrock.

“We have met tirelessly as a Board and Run Committee over these past months. We know the economic impact to the region, as well as the desire of our runners – already postponed for a year – to experience Hardrock. In the end, safety to all was the overriding factor. Our event gathers runners, volunteers, crew and more from around the world into small, isolated mountain communities. We spent a lot of time asking questions and considering options, trying to find a safe version of Hardrock we could hold this year, but the difficult final decision was to cancel the run. We look forward to seeing every member of the Hardrock family in the San Juans in 2021,” shared Run Director Dale Garland.

In the near future, we will be updating our community and runners registered for the 2020 Hardrock in regards to the impact this cancellation has on registrations for 2021.
