As good as the men’s field will be at this year’s Western States, the women’s field might very well represent a larger percentage of the world’s top trail ultra talent. Eight of last year’s Top 10 are scheduled to come back, a ton of talent was added via the Montrail Ultra Cup, and Lizzy Hawker comes to America via the the international entry option. That’s not to mention the many other great runners racing this year. It’s almost easier to note who’s missing from the field than who’ll be there. Actually, it would be easier, but that’s not how we do things here at iRunFar. So, without further ado, the women of the 2012 Western States 100!
