Canadian Faye Stenning won handily in Sacramento, Calif. at one of the calendar year’s final Spartan Race events.
The professional obstacle course racer won the Spartan Super – Elite women’s division, which involves running 8-10 miles (13-16K) and overcoming 24-29 obstacles, from monkey bars to tire flips, in just over 80 minutes. The Calgary native finished more than 10 minutes ahead of second-place’s Laurel Shearer in 1:20:34 to Shearer’s 1:31:06. Stenning was the fifth competitor to cross the finish line on Saturday.
The site of the race was Van Vleck Ranch, about two hours from San Francisco.

It was Stenning’s third Spartan win in two weeks, according to her Spartan Race profile. According to Stenning, it was the 28-year-old’s final OCR event of 2017. (Spartan Races are one of a number of obstacle course racing series.)
Another OCR event that got underway on Saturday, and is ongoing as of noon EST on Nov. 12, was the World’s Toughest Mudder, a gruelling 24-hour race that involves completing as many five-mile (8K) loops of a course as possible at Lake Las Vegas in Nevada.
