On Friday, July 14 at 6:00 a.m., 145 runners set off from Silverton, Colorado for the annual 100-mile journey through the San Juan mountains. Often referred to as a giant ultra-family reunion, Hardrock is one of the toughest 100-milers in the U.S. and has one of the most devout followings of any U.S. ultra.

This rap video, by Run Steep Get High, celebrates the race, its traditions, its iconic peaks and its beautiful scenery.
