In 2015, 27-year-old Kevin Douglas was the youngest person to finish the Hardrock 100. His pacer, Salomon athlete Jeff Pelletier, captured their experience at the race. Through Pelletier, we feel the excitement of race morning and the air of anticipation at each aids station as crew members eagerly await the arrival of their runners. We see race leaders Kilian Jornet, Mike Foot and Adam Campbell. We experience the beauty of the San Juan mountains through sleep-deprived eyes.
