At 5 a.m. on June 26th, Beate Anderson and 460 other runners (as of May 15th) will leave Squaw Valley and head for Auburn, during the 37th Annual Western States 100 Mile Run. To qualify for a finish and an award, she’ll have to complete her run by 11a.m. Sunday morning. Not only will she be competing against other runners, she’ll be challenged by snow, a river crossing, heat, and altitude. Over the course of the event, Beate will traverse 40,000 feet of elevation change. Interested in supporting a local runner? Look for her at the finish line in Auburn at the Placer High School Stadium.
