    The Western States 100-Mile Endurance Run is the worlds oldest 100-mile trail race. Starting in Squaw Valley, California near the site of the 1960 Winter Olympics and ending 100.2 miles later in Auburn, California, Western States, in the decades since its inception in 1974, has come to represent one of the ultimate endurance tests in the world.

In the miles between Squaw Valley and Auburn, runners experience the majestic high country beauty of Emigrant Pass and the Granite Chief Wilderness, the crucible of the canyons of the California gold country, a memorable crossing of the ice-cold waters of the main stem of the Middle Fork of the American River, and, during the latter stages, the historic reddish-brown-colored trails that led gold-seeking prospectors and homesteading pilgrims alike to the welcoming arms of Auburn.

    With more than 1,500 dedicated volunteers, offering the sports oldest and most prized possession a sub-30-hour finishers bronze belt buckle or a sub-24-hour finishers silver belt buckle and owning 100-mile racings richest and most compelling history, Western States remains one of the undisputed crown jewels of human endurance.
