The lottery for the 2021 Hardrock Hundred Endurance Run took place on December 12, 2020, for only those runners who were in the “Else” and “Veteran” lotteries, i.e., only those who had started Hardrock in a previous year. The "Never" lottery field rolled over from 2020. For full details about the Hardrock Hundred Endurance Run Lottery and to confirm that you qualify we encourage you to visit the Hardrock Hundred Endurance Run website.
The course alternates each year and 2021 is a 100 mile counter-clockwise loop through the back country of the San Juan Mountains in beautiful southwestern Colorado. The Hardrock 100 connects or passes near the old mining towns of Silverton, Lake City, Ouray, Telluride and Ophir. With a total elevation gain of approximately 33,000' and an average elevation at near tree line of 11,186', the Hardrock 100 peaks out at over 14,000’ on Handies Peak, one of Colorado’s 14’ers.
