Self-Transcendence 3100 Mile Race 2017 – Daily Updates – Day 50

Daily Diary
Sunday 6th Aug day 50

Yet another cool morning and cool day, giving superb running conditions.
Now that the first 3 have finished, there is a much quieter feel to the morning.
There is also a feeling that this is a “working” day for the next two runners as they have almost three more days chasing lap after lap.
It is a better day for Harita with a solid 113 laps and a sequence of 7 better than 109 laps per day. This has given her a cushion of around 4 hours to finish in two days time.
However Yolanda drops to 110 laps and makes things a little tighter for her. Needing now 221 laps over 2 days to finish in 24 hours.
Andrey has his best ever day with 128 laps (70.246 miles)
Although down to 7 runners and only 2 of these will finish, there seems to be more effort being made from staff, lap counters and crews to up the quality even higher.
The event continues to astound even after 50 days.
