Mount Rushmore of Trail Running?

Across sports radio, the “Mount Rushmore of ” is regularly a hot topic.

Football, names like Tom Brady, jerry Rice, Walter Payton, Lawrence Taylor, Jim Brown…

Basketball, names like LeBron, Jordan, Magic, Bird, Kareem…

Hockey, names like Gretzky, Lemieux, Howe, (rocket) Richard…

Trails … Jornet? Wamsley ? Kouros? Ann Transon? Herron?

So, here it is… what four faces would you engrave into the Mount Rushmore of Trail Running ?

Hmm…I’m torn because the four I’m thinking of are fairly predictable, but I feel like that’s kind of what makes them appropriate, right?!

So I’d say: WS100, Hardrock 100, Leadville 100, Vermont 100

Love the idea of Rushmore of trail races, like the four majors in golf, or the world marathon circuit

Haha @Blake I just reread your post and realized how massively I misunderstood!

I think it’d be tough for me to give top four all time cuz I’ve only been around the sport for about 10 years. The current ones I think of though are Walmsley, Kilian, Courtney D., Camille Herron…Jared Campbell, Scott Jurek, Dean Karnazes…crap! Too many!
