The Hardrock 100 is famous for it’s brutal yet beautiful terrain, freak weather and crazy mishaps. This year was no exception, with a hail storm that left many runners shivering and covered in welts.

Jamil Coury, owner of Aravaipa Running, ran his way to an impressive ninth-place finish. On the way, he documented his run. The result is an honest look at the complete Hardrock experience.

“I get to see and experience so many amazing things [during these trail ultras] and its really fun to be able to share with people who may never run a race like the Hardrock,” says Coury. “I hope to inspire, entertain and move people to do positive things all while having fun along the way.”
