CAMILLE HERRON 100 MILES & 12H WORLD RECORDS IN THE USA CHAMPIONSHIPS.
Camille Herron won the USA OVERALL NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP. A fact that is increasingly recurrent, with several female backgrounds. His USA gold also earned him that double world record.
Herron’s previous 100-mile world record of 12:42:40 had been in effect since November 2017, when it surpassed the previous mark, held by Ann Trason, by more than an hour.
The women’s silver and fourth overall went to Nichole Monette with 14h02, women’s bronze to Stefanie Flipiin with 14h34.51.
The men’s gold and second place in goal, went to Arlen Glick with 13h10.25, silver for Alex Nichols and bronze for Mark Hammond.
When the American ultra-distance runner Camille Herron broke her own women’s world record yesterday, she also set new historical milestones. One of them, as we pointed out above, was winning the U.S. 100-mile athletic championship. USA in Nevada.
We already analyze this phenomenon here in this report: WOMEN WHO RUN MORE THAN MEN. If there we pointed a year ago to more than a dozen examples, this one by Camille is again a new milestone. And this time, with a more than striking advantage, as Camille finished almost half an hour ahead of the first male athlete Arlen Glick, who covered the distance in 13:10:25.
CAMILLE HERRON, FASTER AS A MASTER
In addition, she surpassed herself by running now as a MASTER, veteran: The 40-year-old surpassed her previous mark by almost a minute and a half, gaining in 12 hours 41 minutes 11 seconds, averaging around 7:37 minutes per mile. Or as Camille herself posted, half-jokingly half-seriously: “Faster as a Master”: Without a doubt, champion.
It was also a great personal joy for Herron, who was fourth in the 2021 national championship. And by the way, in this first event as a Masters runner the 40-44 year old category, she also broke the 50-mile world record in that age group with a time of 6:08:24.
