Day 30 The 'elite eleven' made their way around the course today, with a hot sun speckled with breezes and cloud cover at times. The weather has not been a major factor, but the speed and energy at the top of the group seems to be pulling everyone along. Three men led the charge again as temps peaked at about 29-30ºC (86-88F). Vasu Duzhiy is pushing himself to new heights in his running, making 72.44 miles look routine. Consistency is Galya Balatskyy with another day at 71.34 miles- his 30th straight day over 70. Ashprihanal Aalto is still shining at the top with a 75.73 mile day. He needs 795.1 more miles to finish the race. Nirbhasa Magee is a rookie at this distance, but he is again on pace to finish after his 63.66 miles in the heat. It was his best day since Day 11.
