Tennie, owner of Hard Core Fitness LLC, was in the top 50 women and bought home some Spartan prize money by placing third out of 67 in her age group. There were 859 runners in the race.
Hard Core team member Grant Strook placed 25th out of 67 in his age group and Melissa Laack placed 56th out of 389 women. Sandra Finger, competing in her first race, placed 327th out of 389.
