More than 11 hours into his bid to complete a 100-mile ultramarathon on Friday, the rain began falling on Robert Adler, dean of the University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law. The weather worsened as night fell, leaving Adler, 60, and his fellow runners in the Zion 100 Ultramarathon slogging through an increasingly muddy trail in the dark.

Despite the deteriorating conditions, Adler remained determined to finish the race and to underscore his commitment to the school’s ambitious plan to have 100 percent of its graduates pass the bar exam on their first attempt and have 100 percent in professional jobs within 10 months of leaving campus. The race took place just outside of Zion National Park, in the southwest corner of Utah.
