  1. Congrats Amanda and Mark! That’s awesome and well deserved!

    Hey UR magazine folks, why do you include the overall place and gender place for the women’s results while only showing the overall result for the men? This perpetuates the incorrect idea that the women’s race is a sub-category of the overall race. Women and men are not competing against each other. They are running separate races. The only relevant place designation for Amanda at CCC is 2nd place (not 30th overall) and the only relevant place designation for Mark at UTMB is 60th place (not 66th overall).
