Thanks for joining me for this OCR Guy Challenge. Thank you to our very generous sponsors for this 10 Day Ultra!
Makers of award winning Zero Drop running shoes.
The world’s most advanced compression clothing.
Now down to business!
This project has been such a labour of love for me. It’s been a lot of work getting everyone up and running (see what I did there) but it has been worth it. Every day has been rewarding. It has been a privilege to run with you again. Your responses to my form were hilarious. Thank you! Thanks to @2xu_canada and @altrarunning for making this possible. Here are the awards!
Overall Winner !!!!
The overall winner was selected at random by Deanna (MY WIFE) who is basically the guardian of all things important and the best person to trust with such a process. It was very complicated. I put all of your entries into a spreadsheet and asked her to pick a number.
Congratulations Christy. You win a gift card for 2XU socks (or other merch you might want) and a pair of Altra King MT OCR/Trail running shoes! You also get the winner’s coaster and the virtual winners badge to display on your social media should you wish to do so.
Speed Demon award
The fastest overall pace for the distance submitted within the 10 days was Dylan Pollman with a time of 3 hours and 40 minutes for the entire 50K challenge! That’s an average pace of 4:14 per kilometer or 6:49 per mile. That’s a 41:10 10k pace….
The Climber Award
The person who gained the most elevation during the challenge award goes to Peter Kranenburg who ran 96 kilometers over the 10 days, and gained a total of 9753m in the process. That is almost 2000m more than Everest!
There were a lot of great photos submitted for the challenge. After a long and difficult selection process. It was determined that one photo captured the spirit and feel of the challenge best. The photographer award was selected by a representative from Altra and it goes to Nancy Loranger.

Hit two birds with one stone on this run. This idea turned out to be way more fun that I expected. I towed Sadie in the saucer for my 5km #xwarriorchallenge Resolution Run (with penalties). We had loads of laughs haha This adventure also completes Day 6 of #10dayultra. We came in at 5.67km. If my neighbors didn’t already think I was a freak, carrying buckets of sand and throwing spears in my front yard, then they sure do think I am now. #nailedit #xwarriorchallenge #wintereunning #noexcuses #iwilldothisagain #funrun #getitdone #fitfam
This Award is given to the person who drew the best GPS art – or at least the favorite picked by one of my esteemed collaborators. This was a really tough decision, not as tough as a two dollar steak. After a bit of debate a final decision was made. The award goes to Kody O’Brien. The maple leaf intentionally planned into the run was a nice touch.
And one special final award
Given to the youngest runner of the challenge. Judah Kaufmann, just 8 years old, ran the entire 50 kilometers with his Dad. You amazed us all with your running ability Judah. Nice job buddy!

This little guy had a great Christmas, he is very excited about many gifts but this gift is what I found him buried in!! When he opened it and read the personal message in the cover he cried. He has missed uncle Jeremy terribly 😢. @captainkaufmann he is totally stoked about doing these workouts
