A fantastic effort today by Victor Ballasteros, finishing the entire 165-mile Tahoe Rim Trail in one go in 53 hours and 3 minutes. Victor was the last man standing/running from the group of four who started their TRT speed record attempt on Monday morning. As far as I can tell, Victor just is now the 3rd fastest time in the TRT after Kilian Jornet and Tim Twietmeyer.

I am sure it was an unforgettable journey. Congrats, Victor—now go and take a nap!

Yeah, Victor! Definitely a huge effort, and very cool to watch. As far as time ranking, I believe his is fourth. Last weekend, Tom Flahaven ran the entire TRT in 45:43.
