Nirbhasa Magee took Day honors with his precise 64.75 mile day. He scraped both knees in a fall earlier in the evening, but maybe that gave him the extra adrenaline impetus to eck out the honor. The top four runners were able to pass the 60 mile mark again, but the most interesting story is mid-pack, as first-timers Harita Davies and Yolanda Holder waged a nip and tuck excursion for fifth place on the leaderboard. Yolanda was two laps in arrears of Harita to start the day, yet finished four ahead, moving into fifth place by a scant mile. This small competition will probably help both ladies to stay on the course and build the necessary cushion, leading to the hope of hope- a finish. All ten athletes stayed until at least 11:45 pm before finishing their day. Three weeks have passed, and all are still moving. Will someone else emerge to test their fitness again? Stay tuned.
