The runners had eight days to complete 500 miles. There were three starters, who started on Saturday, April 30th. When I got there on Wednesday, May 4th to help crew and pace Tony Covarrubias, one runner had dropped and Tony and John Bridges had been working together throughout the day. Tony would go on to complete 370 miles, running an ultra a day, and John finished with 340 miles.
