No one could muster the magic of Alberto Salazar, but some good attempts at the legendary 87km race in South Africa.
Sage Canaday placed 15th in 6:03:47
Max King rallied all the way to 11th before 70km, but apparently moved too early and placed 50th in 6:33:48.
Sage almost matched Michael Wardian's 2012 time of 6:03:42, but a great reminder of how well Salazar's 5:38:39 was in winning in 1994. Salazar was an absolute mental beast of an athlete to push himself that hard when a guy like Sage is half an hour behind with a time that would be competitive for the win today in 2015.
Can't wait to hear what the guys thought of the race.
