Why Run It?

What to Expect

The Wasatch Front 100 has it all in terms of toughness – 24,000 feet of climbing, altitude as high as 10,000 feet, temperatures ranging from 80°F to 20°F, and a 36-hour cutoff time. So it’s no surprise it’s part of the ‘Western Slam’ – a collection of the 4 toughest 100-mile ultras in the Western US.

"To run 100 miles and more is to bring the body to the point of breaking, to bring the mind to the point of destruction, to arrive at that place where you can alter your consciousness."

-Scott Jurek

The Wasatch Front 100 passes through the heart of the Wasatch Mountains, one of the most beautiful parts of the Rockies. Passing from mountain lakes through meadows, up grassy ridges to high peaks, the course is rightly nicknamed ‘one hundred miles of heaven and hell.’
