So what's the hardest 100 miler in the US?
It's not Barkley. Barkley is more like 130 miles.
So Hardrock then? Or is it Ouray?
Well what's next?
As of now it's been doubling the distance.
But I have your answer to what's next .
This 100k alone has as much gain as the Hardrock 100.
The answer is Baldy Marathons!
Start and finish is at the Mount Baldy Ski Lodge above Mount Baldy, CA.
A little more detailed directions than what's already on the facebook page will be handed out 1 hour prior to the start.
A manditory meeting will be held 45 minutes prior to the start. Laps 3 & 4 will be in reverse direction.
The ski lift is usually open at 7:30am(???), or it's an easy(ish) 3.2 mile hike to the ski lodge. You pass through the ski lodge half way into the loop for a self supported aid station.
Parking your car in the bottom ski lift parking lot will let you pass by your car just after the halfway point of each loop.
