  • "The Hardscrabble embodies everything a mountainous race should be-there is amazing food/music, even better people and it is all placed in a setting that can't be beat. Additionally, the organizers are sincere in their efforts to support land conservation and to promote youth running. A number of Salida youth benefitted from the youth sponsorship program in 2014 and were able to enjoy the primal feeling of running in the wilderness while being a part of a supportive running community."
