For those not familiar with the entry selection procedure for Hardrock....
- All qualified applicants get one ticket.
- Applicants with 1-4 Hardrock finishes ever will get one additional ticket for each finish.
- Top-5 male and top-5 female finishers in 2008 get one additional ticket each (except the winners, who are already accepted).
- Up to one additional ticket will be provided to any entrant from the past three years who did not start. This includes runners who were on the wait list or who withdrew from the wait list or accepted list for any reason.
- No additional tickets will be provided to runners for DNFs.
- Applicants who have performed special services for Hardrock may receive one or two additional tickets. We have generally set a high bar for awarding extra tickets (i.e., simply working an aid station or pacing another runner isn't enough), but those who worked both days of last June's Handies Peak trail construction party will get an additional ticket. If you think you have performed a special service, please list it on the application for selection board review.
