At a Stage 7 to remember, our winners stayed golden.
Congratulations to our wire-to-wire Gold Jersey wearers! Vicki and Rob each came in as cumulative winners. Robert Brouillette ran the 3rd fastest ever time, his Stage 7 time of 2:36:36 bringing him just four minutes shy of the 10:02:55 time from 2003 he has been chasing all week. Second place today and for the week was rookie Nick Burt, posting an impressive sub-3 marathon and a cumulative time of 11:22:39, while Stefan Gudmundson was third overall in 12:16:28, for his third ENDURrun podium finish.
Catherine Desrosiers won her third Stage in a time of 3:13:48, the fourth fastest marathon by a female Ultimate competitor. But ultimately, it was Vicki Zandbergen who held on for the cumulative win to set the 10th fastest ever time, 12:33:56, six minutes ahead of Catherine. Third overall was Valery Hobson in 12:54:30. This was only the third year in ENDURrun history that three women in the same field have completed the Ultimate in under 13 hours.
The top Relay runner at Stage 7 was Jonathan Redfearn of Orange is the New Fast (2:57:25). His performance moved his team into fifth place overall, but the top four spots were held by Health and Performance teams. The H+P Millenials regained the lead on the final day thanks to Nick’s race, while the H+P Masters Men finished second overall and H+P In Betweeners were third. The TEAM LLOYD competition ended up being very close, with TEAM LLOYD 1 coming out on top by just 4:13!
The Sport competition also concluded today. Chris Ladubec was the top finisher, thanks to a 4:21:58 marathon. Joel Miller was second, and Sharon Ditner was third.
