The new runners were Stephanie Tanaka, Julie Tanaka, Stephanie Dretke, Alison Pence and Traci Sims. The team, which placed 101st out of 250 teams, tied with the Metal Heads on a time of 27:32.10.

"The supergirls made their debut in the Reno Tahoe Odyssey in 2014 and it was a must that we did it again this year and with several new members." The drivers of the vans were Kenny Lutz and Shane Pence. "There were moments where I wanted to quit, and nearly cried; by the end of your last leg, in the blazing heat, quitting definitely seems like an option," Moore added. "But you can either quit or keep going, and we all kept going. The adrenaline that you get from pursuing a passion to that extreme is hard to explain. It is incredibly moving and exhausting." Julie Tanaka also added her feelings on the event. "This was the most unique, fun and amazing experience," Julie said. "I had the most supportive team and could not have done this amazing accomplishment without the rest of the Supergirls .... Not many gals can say we ran -- not hiked, not walked -- but ran 178 miles. After I ran two legs through Boca, South Lake and then the next morning with no sleep, the long grade up to Virginia City was one of the biggest accomplishments I have experienced. I had the best and most supportive teammates."
