The final stage of the 17 day journey that was Ultra Corsica 2017 drew to a close today with Johan van der Merwe (RSA) and Jannet Lange (NLD) taking top spots.

Johan said on his Facebook page:
Stage 17 of 17 completed. Went off course again and had to run very hard over the final 10km to secure the sub 89 hour result. Thanks to all who have supported me during my adventure. I will post a decent race report soon. Special thank to my wife Corine Van Der Merwe and Hoka South Africa Hoka One One.

These are not the official results which will be published on the website when all the checks have been completed. These are prelimnary placings and are an approximate guide to what occurred.
