4 days ago by Black Hills 100You never know who you might meet in Sturgis. Proud to be wearing my Johnny Cash shirt. No political ties here...just an ultra runner taking in the 2018 Sturgis Rally. 🤠
7 weeks ago by Black Hills 100And another year is in the books. If you haven't seen them already, the results are posted on Ultrasignup. Inevitably, a few bibs get missed at the finish, so if you don't see your name on there, let us know and we'll get it fixed. I mean, you didn't do all that work for nothing! As usual, Mother Nature had a few tricks up her sleeve again this year. Congrats to all of you who were able to soldier through, especially you 100 milers on Friday afternoon. And a huge thank you is in order for our volunteers, who also soldiered through the storms. It's not an easy job, they just make it look easy. THANK YOU!!!7 weeks ago
Not sure which was more relentless, the Black Hills themselves or Mother Nature, but man~oh~man was that one memorable weekend! Thanks to all the volunteers that gave up their own personal weekends to help us safely experience this gorgeous trail💖💖💖7 weeks ago
Thank you for a great event! This was my first Black Hills' experience. I ran 50k but I will return to Black Hills again.7 weeks ago
All the volunteers were wonderful. thank you to all who made this race awesome and helped me finish my first ultra marathon!7 weeks ago
My husband and I are so grateful to everyone that helped make this event happened! We were so happy and humbled by our first 100+ mile (thank you for the extra few miles 😂) experience!!7 weeks ago
Thank you for a great event! The volunteers were the best and a smile and help with whatever you needed was spectacular and made the pain more survivable. Thanks! And now on to next year!7 weeks ago
This was my son's first 100 mile event. While the weather added to the difficulty, it will certainly be remembered as a great achievement. Thank you to the directors and volunteers you were awesome.
7 weeks ago by Black Hills 100Our 2018 1st place winner from France, Pierre Logic Deragne. 22:38:08!!7 weeks ago
Thank you to all the volunteers this weekend!!! Would not be possible to finish without you.7 weeks ago
Incredible! And that's with hail 3 hours after start ? Love his relaxed smile here also!7 weeks ago
He came through Pilot Knob wearing a nice button up shirt, a hand held water bottle, no pacer, and no crew. Looked like he could just run forever.
7 weeks ago by Black Hills 100Never a dull moment at the Black Hills 100. 3 hours in and this...7 weeks ago
We are in rapid city getting hail and alot of rain. Hope to be there in time for packet pick up
7 weeks ago by Black Hills 100This is the final creek crossing update of the week. In a nutshell, they’re all flowing! That’s what 5+ inches of rain in less than a week will do. They’re not deep or fast, they’re actually just about perfect for getting the full Black Hills 100 experience. Even Porter, who is all of 2 feet tall and 40 pounds, can get across them without the ropes.7 weeks ago
Jennifer, recall the roaring creek crossings in 2014 100K? And the same crossings bone dry in 2012?
7 weeks ago by Black Hills 100Howdy Partner! We are one day from the 100 mile start and 2 from the 50 mile, 50k, and 30k. It's time to cowboy up.

7 weeks ago by Black Hills 100Welcome to the majestic Pacific Northwest....I mean, uh....South Dakota?7 weeks ago
I ran this last year and wish I was running it again. I had such an awesome experience!!!
8 weeks ago by Black Hills 100Porter and Buster the trail hounds scoped out the creek crossings today. Despite the fact that we’ve gotten 3-5 inches of rain the past few days, the status of the crossings is the same as before: the first one has water but the others are still dry. Regardless, all of the crossings are roped. More rain is on the way tonight and the rest of this week, so you’re probably gonna get wet no matter what.7 weeks ago
I will feel right at home #fromtheVirginiarainforest7 weeks ago
Thanks for the update. We’ll obviously find out on Friday, but how does the trail typically drain with all this rain? Does it turn into a mud fest? Looking forward to the adventure, wet or dry!8 weeks ago
Thanks for the update. As an out-of-town runner coming up and not knowing the course, but seeing your weather, this is appreciated for planning sake.
8 weeks ago by Black Hills 100You know race day is getting close when the gear starts rolling in. We’ll have apparel and other miscellaneous stuff on sale at packet pickup on Thursday and Friday and at the the finish line on Saturday. Cards, cash, and beer accepted.8 weeks ago
My first 50 and I am so excited and scared at the same time it is freaky. Laughter to tears in seconds.8 weeks ago
That is some good looking race gear! I could not make it to your race this year, but am hoping to make it my first 100 next year!
8 weeks ago by Black Hills 100The old cowboy on the right is only one year away from signing up for AARP. Happy Birthday you old fart. 🤠👴🏻🎉
8 weeks ago by Black Hills 100As a prelude to this years 100 mile finisher shirt, we thought a motivational video was in order. When you're contemplating calling it a day, just remember....8 weeks ago
Well, I better start packing....2 growlers of local craft brew for Chris Stores and 2 30 packs of Blue Yummies for Ryan Phillips. And some shoes and a fancy new BH100 hat. And vulture repellant8 weeks ago
💯 miler looking for pacer through some late night miles...working to avenge a hot DNF from 2016 running without crew- looking forward to the journey!8 weeks ago
My wife says we are going back next year!! And you know what...I do what the boss tells me to do! #loveBlackHills100
11 weeks ago by Black Hills 100It's that magical time of year when we start begging, borrowing and stealing to round up some volunteers. We are looking pretty solid for aid station volunteers right now, but we could always use some extra help during busy shifts. If filling water bottles and duct taping blisters isn't your idea of a good time, we could also use help at packet pickup on Thursday and Friday or at the finish line on Saturday. The race is June 22-23 this year. If you're around and looking to do something for the betterment of society, drop us a line at: firstname.lastname@example.org weeks ago Black Hills 100
Wow, you guys are eager about sweeping! Didn't expect that much response, nor did I expect anyone to offer to sweep the whole damn thing in one shot and totally solve our logistics issues (thanks, Jason!). I love it when a plan comes together (even if it wasn't my plan). So sweeping is taken care of, but we've got all kinds of other fun(?) stuff to be done if anyone is interested!10 weeks ago
I just found this race! I can't make it this year...I'm happy to volunteer as one of the sweepers next year!!! Following your page!!11 weeks ago
I would like to volunteer and could help with Thursday packet pick up and/or finish line if you tell us more details on the finish line help. I assume packet pick up would be the hours on the website. My primary super power is organization if there's a task that needs it.11 weeks ago
I would do the sweeper deal, but I'll be 6 days removed from Bighorn 100, and my resulting wheelchair wont be trail ready.......11 weeks ago
I might be able to help sweep Silver City to Nemo—-depending what hours? And can we use a bicycle??
11 weeks ago by Black Hills 100Guess who's 40 today? Happy Birthday, RD Chris Stores!
12 weeks ago by Black Hills 100We told Buster our mascot that the 30k & 50k are close to filling up. What does he do? Starts posturing around the pasture trying to pick a fight...go figure! Don't be picking no fights cause you missed your chance to register. Don't be like Buster!
13 weeks ago by Black Hills 100Bob never ran any of the distances at Black Hills, but we did have the pleasure of meeting him and talking with him a couple of times at the Bighorn trail races. He was a legend in western Montana. For those who don't know the story, Bob was a logger who didn't start running until he retired at the age of 61. He ran the Bighorn and Le Grizz 50 milers well into his 80s. If you have the time, look up a documentary about Bob called "The Hard Way" (www.thehardwaydocumentary.com). Rest in peace, Bob!
13 weeks ago by Black Hills 100Race day is drawing close. In a mere month plus change, you’ll find yourself trudging up a hill, hands pressed against your salt-crusted thighs, heart pounding in your chest, calves quivering in protest, and you’ll look up at the sun-drenched sky, sweat stinging your eyes, and see the vultures circling overhead. And, just maybe, somewhere deep within the recesses of your heat-addled brain, you’ll hear the voice of Josey Wales whisper in your ear. And he will say, “Buzzards gotta eat too.”13 weeks ago
Cruz Arredondo. Bhahahahaha, this is the best!!!! #buzzardsgottaeattoo
