    US did very well.  Amy Sproston won the women's race (7:34), Arbosgast 4th, Pam Smith 5th.  Women't team won overall title.

    Men's:  Riddle 5th, Olson 7th, Wardian 8th, Binder 10th.  Men's team second overall

     

    Not sure how others finished

        With current qualifying rules - This will make it tougher to make the team for people

         

        Top 10 auto qualifies for next year.  I would rather see it maxed out at 3 (The scoreres)

         

        Wardian - That is a bit disappointing - With all the racing he does - It has to impact his WC race

         

        Way to go US women and men!

            I've no place posting in this group (as I've not run an ultra in a year) but I noticed my college room mate finished 55th this year. Cool.

              After winning the World Championship, Amy Sproston was named the USATF athlete of the week.

               

              Letsrun had this to say about the race and award:
