2016 Extreme Racer Champ Karen Vollan

Las Vegas native Karen Vollan is the winner of Run It Fast’s 2016 Extreme Racer. Karen (RIF #525) rocked the Extreme Racer racking up 3,496.7 points. She is the first female to win the Extreme Racer, and joins RIF legends John Leighton, Ed Ettinghausen, David Wingard, and Steve Hughes as winners of this grueling, year-long competition.

Karen completed 125 races in 2016 of marathon distance (26.2) or longer for a total of 3,496.7 points. Extreme Racer awards 1 point for each race mile. She averaged 27.97 miles per race. Impressive and unfathomable numbers for most of us. Congrats, Karen!
