Brian Rusiecki finished sixth in the voting. The South Deerfield, Massachusetts based electrical engineer set a new course record in winning the Vermont 100 and won the Bull Run Run 50 for the third straight year. He also showed off his mountain skills by placing in the top 20 at UTMB and capped a very busy year by placing second at Mountain Masochist.
