... then there’s the pace runners

There’s more to the Hardrock 100 than just 140 ultrarunners
Precisely at 6 a.m. Friday, this year’s 19th running of the Hardrock 100 – a field of 140 runners – stepped away from the starting line at the Silverton School, turned left on Snowden Avenue and proceeded out of town on a mountain trail odyssey unlike any other. Who will be first to kiss this year’s Hardrock?
Led by familiar favorite and ultrarunnning legend Karl Meltzer of Sandy, Utah, a five-time Hardrock 100 champion, this year’s Hardrockers will tackle more than 100 miles over the next 24-48 hours, taking them from Silverton to Telluride to Ouray to Lake City and back to Silverton.
First-time Hardrock 100 runner Noe Castanon gets his picture taken in front of the endurance run’s signature rock. “I’m excited,” he said before leaving the Silverton starting line early Friday morning. “I know it will be very challenging for me ... for everybody.”
