Results: Skaggs Wins 2008 Hardrock 100 in Under 24 Hours

Possibly ushering in a new era of ultra-running, Kyle Skaggs won the 2008 Hardrock 100 with a new course record of 23:23:30 (results). Hardrock is arguably the hardest 100 on the ultra calendar and until now no one has gone under 24 hours on the brutal course with 33,000 feet total elevation gain (race site). The previous record of 26:08:34 was set by Scott Jurek in 2007. Click below for a dimly lit, but still impressive video capturing Skaggs' course-crushing finish.
