In our main segment, Coach Twiggs offers a deep dive into the rugged world of the Hard Rock 100, complete with unpredictable weather, trail changes, and the competitive lottery system. We also explore the emotional highs of family pacing and the thrill of tracking runners via live stream.

The role of pacers in ultra-running is explored, highlighting how they help maintain pace, ensure safety, and provide much-needed encouragement. Coach Twiggs shares his own experiences with family pacers, underscoring the emotional highs and the sense of camaraderie that comes from running with those who matter most.
