Last Saturday's victory came less than a year after Elkin earned a Spartan Beast age group victory in California. In May, she topped her age group at the Montana Beast and Sprint in Bigfork and the Big Bear Beast and Sprint in California.
Spartan Beast races cover a 13-mile course with 30-plus obstacles, according to Spartan's website.
