The Hurricane Hundred K is a 100k trail race/run in Hurricane, West Virginia. It's the first race of its kind in West Virginia and will take place in September 2022. The race is hosted by Meeks Mountain Trials and the Meeks Mountain Trail Alliance. In this mini-series, we talk to a variety of runners who plan to run the 100k in September.
Alex Minor is a 24-year-old salesman at Robert Running Shop in West Virginia. His best pitch is "buy these shoes and you'll be fast like me."
Alex hails from Morgantown, West Virginia, and currently lives in Huntington. He attended University High School and Marshall University.
At Marshall, Alex was a 2-time all-conference runner and holds the course record in the Yamacraw 50k (4:19 in 2021) as well as the Cabin Fever 50k (3:43). For those of you at home trying to do the math, that's a 7:12 pace on the trails for a 50k.
The Hurricane Hundred K is presented by Little Caesars and the City of Hurricane, WV.
