Revised 2015 Final Ultra National Rankings

So 2015 is in the books, and I've finished updating the Ultra National Rankings for the year.  Only one change to the top 50 in the final two weeks of racing: Ed Ettinghausen jumped into 36th on the men's side, following up his third place showing at the Desert Solstice 24-hour with a win at the Across the Years 6 Day only a week later.  Unbelievable stuff.

The Ultrarunning UROY results were released as well, so we can see how the voters' top 10 compared to the rankings:

I've already started working on the rankings for 2016, with a few minor tweaks as I outlined earlier.  Some exciting news: I'm working with the good folks at Ultrarunning magazine to try to bring these rankings to a wider audience.  In the coming weeks, we hope to have a dedicated page on the UR website for these rankings (which I think I'm going to rename the Gunksrunner Ultra Rankings, you know, building the brand and all).

As always, peruse the entire list here.  (Helpful hint from some smart folks: use CTRL-F to search for your name on the sheet.)
