At a Stage 7 to remember, our winners stayed golden.

Congratulations to our wire-to-wire Gold Jersey wearers! Vicki and Rob each came in as cumulative winners. Robert Brouillette ran the 3rd fastest ever time, his Stage 7 time of 2:36:36 bringing him just four minutes shy of the 10:02:55 time from 2003 he has been chasing all week. Second place today and for the week was rookie Nick Burt, posting an impressive sub-3 marathon and a cumulative time of 11:22:39, while Stefan Gudmundson was third overall in 12:16:28, for his third ENDURrun podium finish.

Catherine Desrosiers won her third Stage in a time of 3:13:48, the fourth fastest marathon by a female Ultimate competitor. But ultimately, it was Vicki Zandbergen who held on for the cumulative win to set the 10th fastest ever time, 12:33:56, six minutes ahead of Catherine. Third overall was Valery Hobson in 12:54:30. This was only the third year in ENDURrun history that three women in the same field have completed the Ultimate in under 13 hours.

The prize for the closest battle goes to Merzi and Thaddeus, who finished the week a mere 17 seconds apart!

The top Relay runner at Stage 7 was Jonathan Redfearn of Orange is the New Fast (2:57:25). His performance moved his team into fifth place overall, but the top four spots were held by Health and Performance teams. The H+P Millenials regained the lead on the final day thanks to Nick’s race, while the H+P Masters Men finished second overall and H+P In Betweeners were third. The TEAM LLOYD competition ended up being very close, with TEAM LLOYD 1 coming out on top by just 4:13!

The Sport competition also concluded today. Chris Ladubec was the top finisher, thanks to a 4:21:58 marathon. Joel Miller was second, and Sharon Ditner was third.
