Galya Balatskyy continues the new model of consistency as 27 consecutive days over 70 miles is his record alone. Overall leader Ashprihanal Aalto continued his pursuit of perfection with a day leading 77.38 miles. Surasa Mairer is leading the ladies with a fine 61.81 per day average and has stayed above 60 miles for the last 17 days.
