Day 9: Lot of Sun;Lot of Run

Eight runners made it past 60 miles on a day filled with bright sun, low humidity and swirling air about the course. Seven-time finisher Stutisheel Lebedyev from Kiev, Ukraine led the way with 68.05 miles. He is placed in sixth and has been moving quite well for the last 6 days. Sarvagata Ukrainskyi continues to wear the leader’s bib as he and second placer Yuri Trostenyuk both reached 66.4 miles. Sarah Barnett from Adelaide Australia continues to amaze with fast laps and consistent totals. She has an 18 mile lead on second woman Jayasalini Olga Abramovskikh after a solid 64+ mile day.. A few days of warmer weather and rain showers may pass thru on Wednesday but the temperatures overall seem a little below normal for this time of year. Maybe we will get lucky this summer!
