The Run Hundred is a 100-mile track race, held entirely on Nike’s Michael Jordan track (the one with a forest in the middle). Entry is limited to 35 runners total, and all runners will be given Nike apparel the week before, though wearing Nike isn’t mandatory for competition.
Herron broke her own world record at the 24-Hour World Championships, which took place October 2019 in Albi, France. Herron ran 270.116 kilometres, eight kilometres farther than her previous world record of 262.192K, set at Desert Solstice in December 2018.
Based on the runner’s social media, she’s expected to wear the Nike Alphafly for next month’s record attempt. The 100-mile world record currently sits at 12:42.
Runners can apply for entry here. The meet is set to being at 7 a.m. PT and has an 18-hour limit.
