Rounding up the Top 3 were equally strong athletes Americans Mary Beth Ellis @marybethellis and first time on the podium Kim Schwabenbauer @FuelYourPassion with race times of 9:02:14 and 9:10:05. Sooo wicked!

Congrats to the rest of elite podiumers and all the 2,000++ brave warriors who took the strength and courage in finishing a tough and gruelling course. Mighty proud of you guys!
