Team Pearl Izumi's Nick Clark has confirmed he will be racing the Fuego y Agua 100k on February 16, 2013.

With 1st place finishes at Wasatch 100, Jemez 50 - 3rd place finishes in Western States 100, Hardrock 100, Leadville Trail 100 - a 2nd in the Bighorn 100 - just to name a few - Nick is no novice to ultrarunning. 

Nick is also the director of the Quad Rock 50 in Fort Collins, Co.

This puts him in competition with some other top contenders on this brutal 100k course.  

  • Ian Sharman
  • Dave James
  • Yassine Diboun
  • Jorge Maravilla
  • Kurt Lindermuller
  • Sean Meissner
  • Javier Montero

The challenge is to break 11 hours. Javier Montero currently holds the course record at 11 hours and 7 minutes in 2009.  However, this was before the course changed twice to remove some recently paved sections of road. The course is now more challenging, adding a rough section from the 1st and 2nd Aid Stations in the earlier stages and a much steeper descent on Volcan Concepcion for the final 10km of the course.
