Laurie Mc Grath is a Canadian runner who was in the Ottawa 24 hour race I ran 10 days ago. She ran A Canadian Women's 24 hour record of 211 km 6 weeks earlier at the World Championships in Drummondville. In Ottawa she was trying to break that record, she only managed 201 km, but on the way she set a new Canadian Women's record for 100 miles. This photo was taken at the point at which she did it.Her time was 15 hours 59 minutes and 7 seconds.The photo was sent to me by Utsahi st Amand, one of the race directors. Although she was reduced to a walk at the end, she remained cheerful.
