All eyes on Kilian Jornet at 2017 Hardrock 100

Ultrarunner seeks fourth title after Everest ascents
Kilian Jornet, left, and Jason Schlarb finished as co-champions of the 2016 Hardrock Hundred Endurance Race. Both will be back to contest this year’s event.
Kilian Jornet, the mens favorite to win the Hardrock Hundred Endurance Run, drops into Grouse Gulch on a descent from Handies Peak during the 2014 Hardrock Hundred Endurance Run.
Kilian Jornet has three of the five fastest times in Hardrock 100 history already to his name, including both course records.
Mike Foote of Montana was second at the Hardrock 100 in 2015. He’s back to give the 100.5-mile race another go in 2017.
Jason Schlarb has run a few more low-key races since finishing as co-champion of the 2016 Hardrock 100. He’s back at an event he can now call his home race looking to get back on the podium this year.
Less than 12 months after a horrific fall off a mountain in Canada, Adam Campbell will race the Hardrock 100 this week. Campbell was third in the event in both 2014 and 2015, but even toeing the start line this year is a victory for the Canadian who wasn’t sure he’d be able to walk again.
