John Leighton 2015 Extreme Racer Champion Collage - Run It Fast

RIF #190 John Leighton, the Susan Lucci of the Extreme Racer challenge with several runner-up finishes, is Run It Fast’s 2015 Extreme Racer of the Year with 1,706.27 points. That’s over, 1,700 miles of racing that covered several states.

“All they found of John back in Ohio was a muddy set of running clothes, a bar of soap, and an old pair of Hokas, damn near worn down to the nub. I remember thinking it would take a man six hundred years to race as far as he did. Old John did it in less than three hundred sixty-five days..

John ran, walked, and crawled to freedom through seventeen hundred race miles of sh!t smelling foulness I can’t even imagine, or maybe I just don’t want to. Seventeen hundred miles… that’s the length of 29,920 football fields, just shy of 9 million feet.” – JohnShank Redemption

John had just enough points, with a final push on the last day of the year, to eclipse RIF #279 George Southgate who finished in second place for the year with 1,592.2 points.

Third place once again this year went to RIF #1 Joshua Holmes with 1,456.2 points.

Congrats to John on being the Run It Fast’s 2015 Extreme Racer of the Year!
