Kaneenika Janakova is on the cusp of greatness in the 3100 Mile Race. She starts Saturday with 96 laps to go (52.64 miles) in order to reach a personal best, a women's all-time best, and the performance of the race. She leads the mark of the great Surasa Mairer of Austria by 77 laps (42.26 miles), and will have tied the highest placing in 3100 Mile history by a woman (second), set by another immortal- Suprabha Beckjord of the US in the first 3100 Mile Race in 1997. She leads Nirbhasa Magee of Ireland by ten laps. He was 2 days 11 hours ahead of his split at 3000 miles from 2015. Both Kaneenika and Nirbhasa should finish the race by nine-thirty, and ten-thirty in the evening,respectively, if form holds. Harita Davies and Yolanda Holder continue the pursuit of laps in earnest. They are facing four more days of holding the difficult pace needed to finish. Stay tuned, folks.
