We are at the eve of the 39th Western States 100! Our tribe of TALON athletes are ready for a special 100 mile adventure.
Race start time: Saturday, 5:00am PDT (7:00am CST)
Here are some great ways to follow the overall race action throughout the day:
- iRunFar will have great live twitter coverage for the jalapeno footed runners
- Western States Aid Station checkpoints - This will provide time stamps when runners pass through a check point.
- TALON athlete coverage - Periodically throughout the day, I will provide updates (below) on the current status of our athletes and any other insight I can find.
Cool temps expected.
A non-snow course year.
BAM! – A great day awaits!
