the western states trail running race is americas most prestigious trail footrace. from squaw valley to auburn california it tracks ridge lines and scales peaks for 100 miles. it is a nasty vertical course that can get very very hot. trail running at its finest. these guys are total freaks. they crush this course and make it look easy in the process.
