America's only certified Skyrace course. Race Beast of Big Creek on Mt. Ellinor in Hoodsport, WA on Aug 3rd, 2024.

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.
