Western States 2024 Live Stream

On June 29, 2024, one of the most iconic events in the world of ultramarathons will take place: the Western States 100. This legendary race spans over 100 miles from Olympic Valley to Auburn, traversing breathtaking landscapes and altitude challenges that will test even the most daring athletes.

The Course from Olympic Valley to Auburn

The route of this ultramarathon is a true adventure. Starting from Olympic Valley, runners will face over 18,000 feet of elevation gain, with a significant net downhill ending in Auburn. This means that despite the overall descent, there will still be plenty of rugged terrain to navigate along the way. It’s an epic journey through mountains, forests, and wild trails, offering not only a physical challenge (from intense cold to scorching heat) but also a total immersion in the pristine nature of Northern California.

Course Record Holder: Jim Walmsley

The Western States 100 boasts a highly competitive field, with seven of last year’s top ten men returning. Course record holder Jim Walmsley is among the favorites for victory. The Western States is renowned for its unpredictability and unique challenges it presents each year.

Women’s Competition

Last year’s women’s race was truly memorable. Both Courtney Dauwalter and Katie Schide broke Ellie Greenwood’s 2012 course record. Dauwalter clinched victory with an outstanding time of 15 hours, 29 minutes, and 33 seconds, while Schide finished in 16 hours, 43 minutes, and 45 seconds. This year, with Dauwalter opting to stay home and Schide’s continued improvement, she appears to be the favorite for the win.
