With a solid season in the bag, including a second-place finish in the Ultra-Trail World Tour, mega-distance runner Ryan Sandes is targeting top spot in next year’s rankings.
“I definitely want to have another crack at the World Tour,” Sandes said on Thursday.

He secured silver in the global series, which was held for the first time, behind French athlete Francois d-Haene.

After getting his campaign off to a superb start, with a win at the 125km TransGranCanaria in the Canary Islands in March, he followed it up with second spot at the 168km Mount Fuji event in Japan in April.

Two months later, he settled for fifth place at the Western States 100-miler in California before giving the prestigious Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc a miss in August, coasting instead to a comfortable victory at the 250km Racing the Planet stage race in Madagascar, which did not form part of the World Tour.

The calendar for the 2015 campaign will be released at the World Tour awards ceremony in Paris on November 19, but the 32-year-old South African said he had already laid out provisional plans for the year ahead.

“I want to run Western States again because I felt this year I had done too much going in, so next year I want to be fresh. Follow Ryan on Twitter

“I’ll probably only run one race before Western States, the TransGranCanaria, and then I want to do the Mont-Blanc.
