I personally know the RD and if he puts a previous 100 with the
elevation as a prereq, it's a tough MF of a race and he is protecting
the runners from getting in over their head and him needing to notify
next of kin.
By the way, what do you consider extreme the previous 100 the elevation
or both? IMO there are soem that fo not have a prereq that should.
