Max’s 6:27:44 finish took nearly 3 minutes off the American Record (previously Tom Johnson’s 6:30:11 in 1995), and was ~100 seconds ahead of 2nd place Jonas Buud from Sweden. Spain’s Jose Antonio Requejo (Spain) was third in 6:37:03, and American’s Zach Bitter (6:48:53, 6th) and Zach Miller (6:51:30, 9th) also made the Top 10.
