Congratulations @timtollefson on your first place finish at the Ultra-Trail Australia 100k @timtollefson (@get_repost)
Our first trip down under was a success! Super happy that after 5th, 3rd, and 2nd place finishes at various @ultratrailworldtour events I will finally head back to the states with my first international victory. Plus I saw about a dozen kangaroos on the course! Definitely the highlight ?
I decided to throw out my usual “stalk the competition from behind strategy” and try a little front running. Took the lead just after 11k and held on for a very fun filled victory. (Checkout Strava for details)
Thank you to the best crew chief ever @sportsbrasandsnowstorms, all the amazing volunteers, support staff, fans, @ultratrailaustralia board, @ultratrailworldtour, and the thousands of other runners that also braved to challenging course, rain, and various course changes.
And to those still out there fighting, keep on trucking
