Appropriate that runners wearing Hoka OneOne dominated the podium at this year’s Miwok 100km in California, considering the course does take in Stinson Beach.

For Australian readers, the course has roughly the same elevation gain as The North Face 100. With roughly 4,000m of vertical, Miwok’s course records are held by legendary female ultrarunner Ann Trason and 2011 Montrail Ultra Cup Winner and Hoka OneOne athlete Dave Mackey. Trason’s 8:55:49 record set in 2001 continues to obliterate all challengers, with this year’s female winner coming in at 10:35:14.

This video of the race from the Endurables should get you lacing up and running out the door in about 10 minutes flat – great clip.

Mackey won again this year, in a time of 9:14:06, 15 minutes ahead of Price on 9:28:30. Price no doubt appreciated the Hoka freshness in his legs, holding 3rd placegetter Jesse Haynes out by just 25 seconds. Race results also available at RealEndurance.com.
