This race is October 27th-8:00AM at Haw Creek Falls Recreation Area.
The Hare Mountain 100 is a point-to-point 100 mile run, that incorporates 2 scenic spur loops, along the Ozark Highlands Trail in the Northwestern part of Arkansas across the Boston Mountain segment. Hare Mountain is the highest point on the OHT at nearly 2400 feet. This segment covers 164 miles of rocky, steep and rugged forest with several creek crossings, waterfalls, bluffs and beautiful sandstone outcrops. I’m utilizing 100 miles of the most difficult sections of this segment. I have also added a 100k with over 12,000 feet of elevation gain that ends at Redding CG and a 50 mile with over 10,000 feet of elevation gain that ends at Indian Creek TH. Start time and location remain the same. If 100 miles is too far, I have added a point-to-point 50 mile and 100k. The start is the the same time and place as the 100. The 50 mile will finish at Indian Creek TH and it will have over 10,000 feet of elevation gain with a 16 hour cutoff. The 100k will finish at Redding CG and have over 12,000 feet of elevation gain with a 20 hour cutoff.
Being born and raised in Cass, AR I grew up on this trail. Spending hours of my life on and off the trail running, hiking, exploring. It has been a dream of mine since I got back into ultrarunning to bring a 100 mile race to this amazing trail.
I am not making it a qualification but I certainly prefer that you have run a 50 miler on trail with at least 5000 feet of vertical gain. This race will be extremely difficult. Measurements taken by GPS and mapping have put elevation gain between 20,000-22,000 feet. Cutoff for the 100 miler is 35 hours.
