Now that the Western States media hubbub is slowly subsiding it’s time to turn our heads to the next BIG race in the US. The Hardrock 100 in Silverton, Colorado.

According to official 2022 Entrants List there are 145 starters total. (According to numbers pulled from UltraSignup.)

  • 118 men – 81%
  • 27 women – 19%

Not great… not great at all.

But! Their pregnancy deferral policy is clearly spelled out and simple.

Eligibility: Any woman who has been selected for the entrants list of the Hardrock Hundred and becomes pregnant prior to run day.

After deferral, the entrant will be able to re-join the accepted entrants list on any one of the three years following the deferral. 

Kudos to that!
