While the seventh edition of the Telluride 100 was run a bit differently due to Covid-19 social distancing, and especially a deluge of rain in the days leading up to the event, there was no shortage of miles and climbing to put everyone in the pain cave at one point or another. Permitted at 200 racers, instead of a mass start organizers had racers starting in groups of 10 at 30-second intervals with a 6 am start for the fastest racers heading out first. Another change was a slightly shortened version for the 100-mile race as the climb up to the second-highest point on the course on Last Dollar Rd proved to be too muddy for any support or emergency vehicles to access, and thus the decision was made to remove that section from the route.
