Western States Endurance Run - 100 Miles - 06.26.2004


Western States 100 from the perspective of a member of Scott Jurek's crew. Crewing responsibilities limited photo opportunities and the only aid station that we stayed for any length of time was Little Bald Mountain, where we got to see a few other runners besides Scott and Dave Mackey.

Scott made history by winning the race for an unprecedented 6th consecutive year and, in the process, broke the course record by over 4 minutes.
