Wasatch 100 updates: Green, Holdaway, Mohr
For those following the legendary Tom Green’s quest to complete another Grand Slam — his first since he set the initial Slam standard back in 1986 – we’ve learned that he suffered back problems on course that prevented him from finishing the Wasatch 100, the fourth and final Slam event. According to the Wasatch 100 website, Green dropped at Swallow Rocks (mile 34.61). We’re looking forward to hearing more from Tom about his experience in the coming days.
In more positive news, VHTRC runners Jeff Holdaway and Stephen Mohr were among the 240 finishers in Utah over the weekend. Holdaway crossed the line at 31:23:47, while Mohr came in a couple hours later, finishing in 33:37:34.
A total of 321 runners started the Sept. 5-6 race; a record 24 finishers earned sub-24 buckles. Wasatch 100 features 26,882 feet of vertical gain and tops out at 10,450 feet above sea level at Point Supreme; the time limit is 36 hours. Results can be found here.
