Important HURT 100 Information
HURT has a post-race banquet each year at the Mid Pacific Country Club. The banquet is utilized as the awards ceremony, and in addition we recognize all our finishers and hand out special awards throughout the evening, inclusive of HURT 100 mile first time finisher's. Time will be spent reviewing the stories from the weekend with much banter about all that transpired throughout the event.
The banquet (no hosted bar) for the 2020 HURT 100 will be held on 1/20/20 from 5 pm – 9 pm. The entry fee to the HURT 100 does not include any banquet tickets for entered runners, this is simply an add on event at the HURT. If you have interest in attending the post-race banquet you can purchase tickets(s) at https://ultrasignup.com/shopping.aspx?dtid=35536. Refunds for the banquet will be accepted until 12/31/19.
