Atmavir Petr Spacil has moved into position to finish early saturday afternoon. With only 60 laps(32.928 miles) to negotiate, he should finish between 12:50 and 1:45 pm, give or take a few minutes. His last full day on the course was as fruitful as any he has run this year. He reached 74 miles and is content to end the race on an upnote after a series of stomach and intestinal ailments thwarted his attempt to set a personal record. Meanwhile, Surasa Mairer is closing in on another great finish in a sparkling career spanning 19 years and over 20 multidays. She should finish sunday afternoon. She is now 21.4 miles ahead of the previous women's record set in 1998 by Suprabha Beckjord of Washington,DC. Stutisheel Lebedyev is poised to reach his goal of 3100 miles on monday night. He has crossed the finish line eight times previously.
