South African Ryan Sandes won the 83km La Advance Trail of the North Face Transgrancanaria on 2 March, becoming the first person in history to win an ultra-marathon trail run on every continent. He completed the distance in 8:11:26

“ I am stoked! An ultra win on every continent… this win is dedicated to my gran. Gone 10 years but not forgotten,” said Ryan. “My week in GranCanaria leading up to the race was awesome – I enjoyed meeting new people and running in some incredible places. I put a bit of pressure on myself leading up to the race as I wanted to start the season with a good result and try get a European victory. So I had a few nerves this morning before the race started but as soon as we started running things fell in place. I felt comfortable for the first half of the race and then decided to up my pace a bit during the second half of it. I won’t lie the final 10km was quite tough and I was very happy to see the finish line. The race atmosphere and organisation was top class and I hope to be back. I was very happy with my run and think if I keep up the hard work up, the season ahead is going to be very exciting. Thanks to my support team for all your efforts and my dream givers who make this all possible.”
