Across the Years – Aravaipa Running

aravaipa

Joe Fejes (48) managed to hold of ultra running legend, Yiannis Kouros (57) at the Across the Years 6-day event held by Aravaipa Running. Liz Bauer (54) covering a distance of 415.72-miles was 5th overall and the ladies outright winner with Vikena Yutz (43) almost 50-miles in arrears.

The 6-day event proved an incredible nail biter as Fejes and Kouros pushed each other to the limits. Behind, William Sichel (60) had held 3rd place for a considerable length of time but in the latter stages, Ed Ettinghausen (51) rallied and beat Sichel with just over 4-miles distance; 476.61 to 472.41-miles.

It just goes to show, that age is not a limiting factor when it comes to running long!

Imagine, running 6-days and covering 555+ miles and having the greatest ultra runner in the world at your heals; pushing you and pushing you.

It’s an incredible testament to what some people are able to endure and put themselves through. While many of us will have been drinking and eating 2013 away and welcoming 2014, these brave souls, 55 in total (finished) were putting one front in front of the other. Fighting physical, mental and sleep fatigue; they all produced the unbelievable!

Top-10 results:

In addition, records were broken:

  • Joe Fejes broke the American 6-day record. (His first attempt at 6-days)
  • Ed Ettinghausen broke the 50-54yr old 6-day record. (also first attempt at 6-days)
  • All records here: http://192.227.164.175:8080

Aravaipa Running staged many events in Across the Years : 24-hours, 48-hours, 72-hours and the 6-day.
