The 100-mile course, which began and ended in Silverton, has a cumulative vertical gain of 33,050 feet with an equal amount of descent, and takes place at an average elevation of 11,000 feet.

The ultimate Hardrocker

For 23rd straight year, Fruita’s Apt able to finish Hardrock 100

SILVERTON — Kirk Apt, the dean of the Hardrock 100 Endurance Run, likes prime numbers.
The 55-year-old Fruita runner is particularly fond of 23.
“Twenty-three is one of my favorite numbers actually,” Apt said, just minutes after finishing the iconic 100-mile trail run through the San Juan Mountains last weekend. “I like all prime numbers and I like 23 a lot.”
