Americas Continental 100K Championships 2017 Results
Congrats to the CDN contingent who ran in the inaugural Americas Continental 100k Championships today at the Madcity 100k in Madison, Wisconsin.
The temperatures were decent but high winds made for a challenge for the athletes.
Julie Hamulecki of Toronto placed 2nd female and ran a personal best of 8:03:46 and came within 47 seconds of the CDN record held by Ashley Evans....
Stephanie Simpson of Montreal, Quebec ran 9h32m gutting out 30k when her pace fell off but kept moving forward to hit that finish line!
A huge thank you to Race Director Timo Yanacheck and his team for a great race and for being incredible hosts. And to Lin Gentling and Nadeem Khan from the IAU for getting the Continental Championships coordinated and running!
