To complete this challenge, you must begin in Lake City and make your way on foot to 10 different “proof” points and 6 “Checkpoints”. The 6 “checkpoints” are the only areas you’re allowed to get aid from your crew or the drop bag you provide. The 10 “proof points” will only consist of some way of proving you actually arrived at that location, this will be disclosed the day before the challenge. The route you take between the checkpoints and proof points is totally up to you so long as they are hit in the proper order. For recognition of finishing the high five 100 you must arrive back in Lake City before the 48 hour cutoff. The most practical route between points is estimated to be between 90 and 105 miles with over 40000 ft of gain. If you complete this challenge you will summit 5 14ers along with traversing some of the most beautiful, rugged terrain the San Juans have to offer. We expect all runners to follow the wilderness regulations and have respect for the land we get to enjoy. We do not charge an entry fee. We do not mark a course. We do not have aid stations. You will not get a medal if you finish. This is not your standard 100 miler. This challenge is made for the runners that live a life actively seeking out that hard thing, the thing that they will obsess and destroy themselves over all in the name of finishing and achieving a goal that is seemingly impossible. Welcome to the “High five 100.”
