‘A long run’ to kiss the Hardrock

Chaigneau sets a counter-clockwise record to win the Hardrock 100
Frenchman Sebastian Chaigneau was one of the final 140 ultrarunners to make this year’s Hardrock 100 field. On Saturday, he was the first to cross the finish line and kiss the rock, and he did it in record fashion – 24 hours, 25 minutes and 50 seconds, a new counter-clockwise high mark.
“He turned it on,” said Scott Jurek, the 2007 Hardrock 100 champion and the pacerunner for this year’s champion, Sebastian Chaigneau, who set a new counter-clockwise course record in 24 hours, 25 minutes and 50 seconds.
For the second consecutive year, Darcy Africa won the Hardrock 100. The first female to kiss the rock crossed the finish line in 29 hours, 54 minutes and 55 seconds.
Adam Hewey of Seattle, who ran the last 20 miles or so with severe stomach and leg cramps, finished the Hardrock Hundred Mile Endurance Run from Silverton to Lake City to Ouray to Telluride and back to Silverton nonetheless.
