At 100 miles long, and with more than 33,000 feet of elevation gain and descent, the Hardrock 100 has long been considered one of the world’s toughest ultras. The 2016 race in Southern Colorado’s San Juan mountains drew 152 of some of the world’s best runners, and only 115 finished. Anna Frost took the women’s title for the second year in row while Kilian Jornet and Jason Schlarb walked across the finish line together to share the victory. Photographer Daniel Sohner was there, camera in hand, to see it all unfold. Here, Sohner shares of a few of his favorite images from the race.
