The 2012 Western States 100 Mile Endurance Run is in progress as of 5am PDT today.

Follow the racing action and your favorite runner via the webcast.

Runners face a climb of 2,550 vertical feet within the first four miles of the course.  Afterwards, they must ascend another 15,540 feet and then descend a total 22,970 feet as they reach the finish line.

Brutal, is all I can say.
