Day 30: A Month of Work

The world’s longest footrace reached the 30th day today, and Sarvagata Ukrainskyi did not disappoint. The race leader chalked up his best day total this year with 74.08 miles, and extended his lead to 94 miles. Second placer Yuri Trostenyuk went past the 2000 mile mark for the second time in his running career(2000 miles=29 days+16:34:20). Things became more complicated in the sticky evening when the rain became steady and several thunderstorms moved into the area, pummeling the course and runners alike. But our heroes met the challenge well, as seven went past 60 miles.
