As of the end of stage 3, the women's race couldn't be more different from the men's. The top 4 women were separated by less than 1 hour.
- Sharon Gayter: 28:52
- Sarah Lavender Smith: 29:04
- Caroline Richards: 29:31
- Heather Mastrianni: 29:40
Caroline had won the first 2 stages, but Sharon stormed back to win the 3rd and take the overall lead.
Watching these women run, it was apparent that they were racing from the get-go. Every stage was an opportunity to break the competition, particulalry between rivals Caroline and Sharon, who have a bit of history. At this point in the race, it's too close to call the top-4, let alone a winner.
Overall, the women are rocking and rolling: 4 of the top 8 and 7 of the top 15 overall at this point are women. As the races get longer and tougher, the gender gap gets smaller and smaller.
