Day 5 – Vol State 500K – Run It Fast Members Update (2018)

Day 5 action at The Vol State 500K saw Rhoda Smoker come from 12 miles back at the 96-hour check in to become the First Female to The Rock for 2018. Rhoda got to The Rock in 4 days 12 hours 5 minutes 35 seconds which is the 3rd fastest time in VS500K history for a woman.

She was on a pretty regimented sleep schedule that had her sleeping during the nights and getting up early in the mornings to run throughout the entire day until early evening where she would then bunker down again. It worked well as it kept her miles really strong/fast, and got her the rest she needed.

Smoker passed RIF #404 Andrea Kooiman around mile 290 to take the lead. Andrea went on to finish strong, just a couple hours behind Rhoda, with a time of 4 days 14 hours 40 minutes 59 seconds which is the 4th fastest female finish in race history. Congrats to Andrea on an amazing performance and to her crew of Jill Williams and David Pharr (guest day 1 cameo by Marylou Corino and day 5 Sonja Beck).

Regina Sooey who leap frogged for the lead and with the top two finishing women throughout the first 4 days faded on day 5 but still managed to secure third place female with at me of

Two unscrewed men Brian Trinkle and Alan Abbs had a sprint finish to The Rock with Brian barely edging out Alan to take second place with a time of 4:19:59:23. Alan finished just 17 seconds back of Brian.
