On February 18th, Hayden Hawks will toe the line of Moab’s Red Hot 50k. If I was a betting man, I’d be having a punt and naming Hawks as the victor. Yes, this guy is on fire – he proved it in December when he pushed Zach Miller all the way to the line at San Francisco 50. Zach took the day and the $10.000 prize purse but the duo both went under the old course record, as Hawks says, “I broke the course record by over 10 minutes and did everything that I possibly could today but Zach just had a little more than me.”

But who is this 25-year old from Utah? In 2016 he burst on the scene with victory at Speedgoat 50K, sponsorship with Hoka One One followed and victory at Capstone 50K in November laid the foundations for that very memorable head-to-head with Miller.

“I am excited to get going this year. To be honest with you, right now, I’m ready to race and I’m just getting anxious, I want to race so bad and I want to travel so bad but for now I need to get a good base in training and then I’m going to go out there and be ready to go…!”

One thought on “Hayden Hawks – C’min’ At Ya, Fast! on IRUN4ULTRA

  1. Small correction, it’s a 55K. This race has been a coming-out party for a lot of big names in the past, including Krar, Krupicka, Dakota Jones, Emily Harrison, Walmsley and Kyle Skaggs, partially because runners are looking for an early season test and also an escape to more moderate temperatures. I expect that you’re correct that Hayden Hawks will take the win and challenge the CR.
