Western States 100 Coverage

I've compiled a quick list of Western States 100 race coverage so bookmark this page and come back!
At the time of this posting there are still runners on the course in pursuit of the coveted belt buckles. I'm sending prayers to each and every one of them that they meet their goals, belt buckle or not!

Great write up in the Roseville Press Tribune

Twitter of course has tons of real time coverage from people on the course, following the race and actually working as volunteers.
Click on the link on the hashtag #WS100  to see all the tweets related to the race.
Twitter user and fellow runner @chmpgnepolitics took this photo at the finish line!



There's a Ustream page dedicated to the finish, you can pretend you are there!
