Four runners made it past 60+ miles, with, who else- Vasu Duzhiy, topping the 70-mile mark to secure Day honors. Vasu, who has passed the finish line of the previous six editions of this yearly spectacle, has 864 laps to negotiate, to become the first man since Ashprihanal Aalto, to win three 3100 mile races in a row (Mr. Aalto did four straight- 2007-2010). It is still about a week for Mr Duzhiy to run, but his strength and dominance in this Race is amazing to watch.
The high humidity moving into the area may cause some rain problems on Wednesday, but the runners have remained resilient throughout. The top five remain on pace to finish, and Kaneenika Janakova has been making a solid push to get to level. She looks destined to overcome a 30-mile deficit.
