Harry Hamilton, Bighorn Trail 100 Race Report

Harry Hamilton, Bighorn Trail 100 Race Report

"An adventure that had it all"
As advertised the Wild and Scenic Bighorn 100 is probably the most scenic trail run that I have ever participated in. The terrain and views were beautiful. The mountains were picturesque and their stone faces were amazing.  That is saying a lot from a guy who usually only focuses in the trail and where my feet strike.

To really understand this race you have to know the trails, or at least get a good description of the course.  If you can’t experience the trails in person, I think photos or video do a better job than any sort of written description, at least as far as my writing skills are concerned.  Luckily, we have great pics and video from the race thanks to Joe.

"Tough decision but the best decision"
The days leading up to the race the area suffered intense rain storms, the roads, rivers and streams were flooded. For some reason I didn’t think much about the trail conditions while driving on the winding road towards the start. I should of known better when we were following a truck plowing the road of debris and mud but I was overwhelmed by the vibrant colors of green, the wild flowers, and the sounds of the flowing water. Everything felt alive, begging for adventure...

While I run in New Paltz, NY all the time due to it being Steph’s hometown, I rarely run on the carriage roads.  I love singletrack and that area has some of the best.  The carriage roads winding through the Mohonk Preserve are also some of the best, and the scenery along the roads is spectacular so I was excited when they announced the first RTR last year...

Sweat, Mud and Slippery Rocks
This weekend kicked off the start to my racing season.  I would represent my team at the North Face Half Marathon at Bear Mountain.  I'd never run this race before but was familiar with the course since I had the opportunity to run all the trail sections. Earlier in the week the NYC/NJ metropolitan area received quite a bit of rainfall...

Soon after I finished the North South trail in RI, I started thinking about some of the nearby Blue Blazed trails in CT.  I had done an out and back on the Nehantic trail and was impressed by how well it was marked and the quality of the terrain.  A few people mentioned that the Narragansett Trail was a much more interesting route,
