“I can’t begin to describe what this year meant for me,” Anderson said. “It was a milestone personally, as well as for the history of thru-hiking. I became the first female Calendar Year Triple Crowner, the first female Triple Triple Crowner and the fastest female Triple Crowner.”
After a 3rd place finish at the 2017 Western States 100, Mark proved that he was for real, by coming back and finishing 3rd place, yet again, in one of the most competitive 100 mile races in the history of the sport.
"This race was very, very surreal, I feel like I’m just starting my journey as an elite ultrarunner, and because of this, I’m overlooked a lot. So to have this win validate myself, it’s just really fulfilling" - #TeamAltra Elite Sabrina Stanley
