The world of ultra running saw some stunning results. Marissa Lizak won the Desert Solstice outright in a new F40-45 record. She covered 148.08 miles (238.32 kilometres, and a mind-numbing 595 laps) in 24 hours on a 400m track! 84-year-old Canadian Roy Svenningsen became the oldest person to complete a marathon in the Antarctic. And mountain running king Jim Walmsley put together an insane week of training mileage.
