Bighorn 100 Info

A lot of our Fort Collins trail runners will be at Bighorn this year so a lot of people have been asking about course info.

So I figured it would be easier to organize and post all of my info in one place here.

I’ve posted the full 100 mile map and elevation profile here.

For current snow levels, check the Bald Mtn Snotel site. It’s a few hundred feet higher than Porcupine but it’ll give you a rough idea of what to expect at the high end of the course.

Jim O’Neil and Sue Norwood are regulars at Bighorn and they might be up in the area to train a few weeks before the race. They posted a bunch of photos before the 2009 race. These were really helpful to see what the trail conditions were like leading up to the race.

Some additional reading:

My 2009 100 mile race report and photos.

Rob’s 2010 race report.

Nick’s 2009 race report.

Alex’s 2010 50 mile race report.

A lot of other locals have run the Bighorn 50k, 50 mile, and 100 mile races. If you come out and join any of our FCTR group runs, there’s a good chance that you’ll meet at least 2 or 3 people who have experience out on the course.

    This is great, thanks! I’m getting pretty psyched. By the way, Nick’s report is totally out of control.

    I especially like this quote. “I told anyone who would listen that I would never be running one of these ridiculous races ever again. 100s are absurd.” …except for Western States, Wasatch, Western States again, Hardrock, and Mont Blanc.

    At least he stopped wearing cargo shorts in races!
