Hal Koerner WINS the 2009 Western States 100 Miler

this. is. simply. amazing.

hal koerner wins his second western states 100 miler in a row! he dominated likely the most competitive field of 100 mile ultrarunners ever assembled. as he said in his pre-race interview he wanted to “go out hard” and “put a gap on” the field. he ran from squaw to auburn, ca in 16:24:55

hal’s a buddy of mine and i couldn’t be more stoked for him. congrats hal! seriously incredible running. you have inspired me hal.
