See what it’s like to run the course of the vaunted 100-miler in this video by UltraSportsLive.TV
Just about every trail runner has heard of the Western States Endurance Run in northern California; the oldest trail 100-miler in the country, Western States serves as something of an unofficial ultrarunning championship each year. But relatively few of us have actually visited the course, much less run it. In this video, UltraSportsLive correspondent Nate Dunn and 25-time Western States finisher (and five-time champ) Tim Twietmeyer guide viewers on a running tour of the course, from a snowy start in Squaw Valley to the finish on the track of Auburn High.
