Western States

Western States runner Greg Miller is attended to by his “crew” — friends and family who were with him every step of the way.

At 5 a.m. on Saturday, a shotgun fired in Olympic Valley, Calif., and 383 runners commenced a brutal 4-mile ascent as the sun rose. At the top, they briefly took in the Sierra Nevada vista before pushing forward — for 96 more miles. 

The gritty endorphin chasers were competitors in the 2022 Western States Endurance Run, a 100.2-mile ultramarathon. Among these runners were three local Coastside men: Ron Little, of Montara, and Greg Miller and Brendan O’Donnell, of Half Moon Bay.
