Let’s get into the stats, standings, and recaps from the road…

Jeffrey Price Team: The Jeffs were a close second place for the day, and only lost 10 miles of their lead on third place. They have a strong lead that should be tough for The Chucks to surpass.

It was the Tom and Heather Show once again with Heather ‘Double-Dime’ McComb running 20.55 miles and Tom Orr completing just under that number with 20.35. Its Heather’s 16th consecutive day of 20+ miles, a race record.

The (My) Pillars helping push this team today included Alfa Severino (19.55) who continued her hot streak, team captain Melissa Price (16.61), and big John Leighton with 14.55 miles.

The team is currently in Winchester, Virginia.

They are just 418 miles from New York City and hope to get there on Saturday. They are currently in Lexington, Virginia at the Virginia Safari Park in search of the real Tiger King.

Ben Herron chipped in with 8.32 miles and Cathy Downes had 8.33.

But the big story on the day for the team came from 9-year old Juleann Roberts who came through with 10.22 miles, her first double-digit day of the race. It was a huge help for the Hope Shull Team. Juleann now has 87.53 miles for the race and should crack 100 miles before the race is over (she’s everything Ohrey is not).
