Western States 100

profile-map

In my Western States Preview and Predictions, I originally put Matt Laye as 4th. However, it sounds like he is recovering from an injury and he doesn’t think he will be near the front of the field. I bumped him out and filled his spot with Michael Aish. These are the same picks that I entered in the iRunFar Prediction Contest.

Max King will be running his first 100-miler and he’s said his goal is to finish in under 24 hours. I don’t buy it. Not even a little bit. I expect Max to try and run near the front for as long as he can, which may be quite a while if he’s on.

The race starts tomorrow at 8:00am EST. For live updates throughout the day, check out iRunFar. There is also a webcast and a live feed.
