Colorado's historic snowfall is ruining more than my hiking plans. Danger along in the San Juan Mountain Range has forced the director of one of the longest and biggest races in Colorado to cancel it.

The Denver Channel is reporting that the 100 mile Hardrock Endurance Run, which was supposed to get underway July 17th has officially been cancelled because of avalanche danger, debris, and and uncertain conditions on 40% of the course.

Run director, Dale Garland said this in a press release:

“After an extensive process, it became clear that the uncertainty associated with the condition of the course and the issues that the uncertainty caused among our organizational components meant we could not organize and administer a safe and meaningful 2019 Hardrock Hundred Endurance Run that was consistent with the standards and values Hardrock has become known for.”
