While we will do our best to keep the ultrasignup list as current as possible with last minute entries and withdrawals, hey – no promises! It’s all part of the fun! Harvey’s handicapping hints below will help get you started.



1. Alex Nichols, 37, Co. – Former winner here and 2nd at Western had couple down years but recent 8th at Western says he rounding back to form.  Patient style plays well on this course and think he’s the one to beat if runs to past form. The pick in a very tough field.
2. Mark Hammond, 37, Utah -Perennial podium and six time finisher here seems focused on this and recent 14 hour 100 milers on flat courses are smoking, so you know he’s still got the wheels; guy has faced the best in the world at Distance of Truth and knows course better than anyone. Would be no surprise if he finally breaks through for the win.
3. Arlen Glick, 29, Ohio – Young up and comer flat lander was just a terrific third in deep Western States; guy could be the next coming and no argument with those that think he’ll run away with it, but betting on others on tougher course at altitude. Likely favorite.
4. David Sinclair, 30, California – Recent winner of Speedgoat and Broken Arrow is quick as they come, and hey, that close second to phenom Adam Peterman (who came back to win Western States) at Canyon 100K says he’s among the best. Pedal to the metal style may hurt in field where many might want the lead; might be first try at Distance of Truth but a threat if he takes to it and lays off the gas. Teams with Mary Baughman in the Team Challenge.
5. Nick Elson, 38, Canada – Looks to be this guy’s first try at Distance of Truth, but, boy, is he fast. Broken Arrow Skyrace just 52K, but he beat some of the world’s best, and Canadians have done well here. Huge chance. 
6. Jim Rebenack, 38, Co. – Guy has won here before but continues to fly below the radar; patient style will suit as it looks to be hot up front; clearly would be no surprise since he’s won at this venue. One of the deserving favorites in a very tough field.
7. Adam Loomis, 30, Utah – Last year’s facile winner at the Bear 100 shows no races since so could be improving but waters run much deeper here. Contender but will need to step up his game. Teams up with Devon Yanko in the Team Challenge.
8. Nick Lewis, 36, Arkansas – Yeah, we know the guy hasn’t shown much lately but that second in Leadville in 17 hours way back when tells me he has the talent and he’s not coming here for the frequent flyer miles. Another with a real shot to take it all if he’s matured. Teams up with Kacey Nobert in the Team Challenge.
9. Kyle Curtin, 35, Co. – Hey, has run top 10 at Western and was just 13th and that’s nothing to sneeze at, and anyway he seems to be getting better. Just have a sneaky, funny feeling about this guy. Teams up with Maggie Guterl in the Team Challenge.
10. Pete Mortimer, 41, Arizona – Facile winner of recent HURT 100 rates a chance off that; another Master with a chance to win it all.  Teams up with Annie Hughes in the Team Challenge.
11. Seth Wealing, 43, Co. – Seventh here last year but recent good effort at Quadrock a good foundation for this. Expect him to contend and not just for Masters.
12. Corey Logsdon, 34, Nebraska. –  Has run some sparklers at the Distance of Truth, including 3rd at HURT and 2nd at Cascade Crest; 14 hours at Tunnel Hill means he has wheels. Rates a definite chance. Teams up with Rachel Lemke in the Team Challenge.
13. Thomas Dean, 27, Wyoming – Kid’s just 27 and been years since he’s off the podium; has been here before but is much better now. Suspect he’s focused on this; dark horse pick to hit the podium.
14. Craig Hunt, 31, Arizona. – Lightly raced but seems quick at shorter distances; tough race to make debut at Distance of Truth. Will need to step up his game to contend.
15. Bryan Kerl, 30, Co. – Last year’s 7th at Canyon 100k sticks out, as that was  very deep field; altitude no problem for this guy and patient style will suit as many in field will want the field. Dangerous.
16. Michael Bailey, 30, California – Not sure what to make of those Chattanooga stage races but win at the North Face in D.C. says he has the wheels. Interesting. 
1. Devon Yanko, 40, Co. – Been one of the best in the world for quite some time and recent win at Umstead in 14+ says she hasn’t lost a step; hooks up with second selection again and think she may turn the tables; hers to lose and Masters purse to boot. Teams up with Adam Loomis in the Team Challenge.
2. Annie Hughes, 24, Co. – Just 24 and entering her prime; won her last 5 including Leadville and has won at longer so distance won’t be a problem. Recent winner of High Lonesome just defeated top selection so would be no surprise. Run, Rabbit, Run has been the coming out party for some of the world’s best and she could be next. Could be any kind. Teams up with Pete Mortimer in the Team Challenge.
3. Monique Van Den Boogaart, 33, California – Runner shows multiple international ultras in which she’s done well, and that was a terrific one at Transgrancanaria couple years back. Another who would be no surprise if she wins it all.
4. Kacey Nobert, 29, Co. – Hey, don’t let that stinker in Leadville fool ya as that was first try at Distance of Truth, win at Scout Mountain was smoking, and other than that stinker never been off the podium. Expecting a big effort if she doesn’t step on the gas early. Teams up with Nick Lewis in the Team Challenge.
5. Melissa Beury, 43, Utah – Terrific second here two years ago but field this year much deeper; suspect she’s focused on this and we like that; another one of the ones in a highly contentious field.
6. Salynda Heinl, 37, Co. – Four time RRR finisher was fifth here couple years ago but now shows four straight wins; appears she’s in top form and we’ve been expecting a break out win from her for some time; contender for all the marbles in a very balanced field.
7. Mary Baughman, 27, Co.  50 mile winner here last year and figures only to improve; she’s just 27 and though this is her first try at Distance of Truth RRR has been the coming out party for quite a few of the world’s top runners and she may be next. Watch out! Teams with David Sinclair in the Team Challenge.
8. Laura Stamp, 28, Washington. – Been many years since she’s been off the podium; loved effort at Tushars but now waters run much deeper. Fits in for another podium finish if she steps up her game.
9. Katie Arnold, 50, New Mexico – Former Leadville winner but that was a while ago; still recent efforts show she still has some wheels and we know distance and altitude won’t be a problem. She’s 50 now and we’ll be rooting for her and so should you.
10. Michelle Kent, 25, Co. – Runner was third at Leadville last year but waters way deeper here, still, she’s just 25 and could be any sort and 5th at Never Summer two years back better than it looks. Outside shot if she steps up her game.
11. Rachel Lemke, 27, Virginia – Yeah, she’s an east coaster and altitude will be a challenge but gal has won at Old Dominion 100 and win at Mountain Masochist was a good one so distance should not be a problem.  Anyway, that’s why we make them line up and run, isn’t it? Teams up with Cory Logsdon in the Team Challenge.
12. Maggie Guterl, 42, Co. – Runner sparkles at super ultra distances, so 100 miles – believe it or not – may be too short for her. Suspect she’s focussing on this.  Rates a chance. Teams up with Kyle Curtin in the Team Challenge.
13.  Jenny Pierce, 39, Montana – Recent winner of tough Crazy Mountain 100 has been here before and run well, with a top 10 finish; not sure what to make of her chances but the talent is there, and, hey, we like Montana runners who always seem to run well here. Another that rates a definite shot..
14. Tara Dower, 28, North Carolina – Second at Cruel Jewel, 3rd at Umstead, and never been off the podium in 8 races. East Coaster maybe be up against it with altitude and mountains, but respect her chances. Suspect she’s game as they come.
15. Maria Sylte, 32, Co. – Winner at Bighorn 100 and Rocky Raccoon 100 last year but this is a whole different ball game. Faces by far the toughest field she’s faced yet.  Will need to step up her game and she may be up for it. Respect.



1. Tyler Andrews, 32, Mass. – Winner Javelina 100k, almost always on the podium. Lightly raced and gets the nod in an evenly matched bunch if handles mountains and altitude.
2. Sam Beal, 27, Co.- 6th Quadrock 25, 3rd last year in Never Summer 60K, 2nd Golden Gate Dirty 30; winner Bear Chase. Young runner with room to improve.
3. Ryan Van Ness, 46, Co. – 4th in the 100 miler Tortoise here a number of year ago; was once 4th in RRR 50 too. Knows course, comfortable with altitude and distance. Masters runner would be no surprise.
4. Scott Mehring, 32, Co. – On the podium in all his races last couple years and looks like he’s improving.
5. Donnie Gray, 53, Utah – Grandmaster lightly raced at ultra distance but field has so far come up soft; have a funny feeling. 

1. Meghan Morgan, 25, Co. – Just 25 and already has wins at Bear Chase, Behind the Rocks, and a sneaky good 8th in tough Canyons Endurance 100K. Could be any sort, contender for overall win and suspect it is hers to lose.
2. Georgia Porter, 34, Arizona – Winner Crown King, 2nd Black Canyon. Looks to give top selection a run for her money.
3. Debbie Issen, 32, Co. – Very lightly raced but third in recent Quadrock 25 might put her right in the mix. Could surprise.
4. Andrea Wilhelm, 42, Co. – Local runner knows course well and was 4th here last year, 6th in 2019. Should be in the mix again.
5. Katie Rozar, 29, Florida – Yeah, we know she’s a flat lander but gal has run some good ones out east. Dangerous if she handles altitude and mountains.
