Tired after the long and arduous race over North America's highest mountain, it was determined by the ultra-runner that he needed a long rest.

As the sentence starts with "tired after.." the end of this modifier must be followed by the person who is tired, who this modifier modifies. So expect a noun (a person who would be tired in this case ) to be placed at the beginning of the main clause. C places the noun for the modifier to modify correctly.

A. it was determined by the ultra-runner that he needed a long rest - 'it' has no antecedent and 'it' cannot be tired
B. the determination was made that the ultra-runner needed a long rest - 'The determination' cannot be tired
C. the ultra-runner determined that he needed a long rest - Correct- Who was tired? the runner.
D. a long rest was needed by the determined ultra - runner'long rest' can not be tired
E. a long rest had been determined as needed by the ultra-runner - runner'long rest' can not be tired
