Winter, trails, darkness, and all the weather.
One last hurrah before the end of the year. Runners, get ready for a fun and festive holiday treat along the trails of Squaxin Park.
Twitter user @aidstationfireb is collecting some interesting historical data on next week’s epic showdown in the San Juan Mountains:
The race has been historically overwhelmingly American, with of the 3110 total race entries, 2932 are from the US (94.3%), and of the 2052 race finishes, 1910 are from the US (93.1%).
This account has several twitter threads, diving into the data on UltraSignUp and the Hardrock website.
Events like this, with a single race distance and a small field of runners are catnip for data fans. Great stuff.
