It was an exciting weekend of racing all over the world – here are some highlights:
Yemane Tsegay ran 2:06:54 at the Ottawa Marathon – it was a course record and the fastest time ever on Canadian soil.
Kilian Jornet won the Zegama Marathon for the 7th time and obliterated the old course record – he finished in 3:48:38 (photo credit: iRunFar).
Stevie Kremer (Salomon) pulled away in the women’s race at Zegama and won in 4:46:43. Check out how close two through five were:
2) Elisa Desco (SCOTT) – 4:50:20
3) Maite Maiora (La Sportiva) – 4:51:47
4) Emelie Forsberg (Salomon) – 4:52:12
5) Kasie Enman (Salomon) – 4:53:33
In other news, I’ve made a few modifications to my Cayuga Trails 50 Men’s Elite Preview. I also have at least one more to make, as Dave James has thrown his hat in the ring. Dave has gone 13:06:52 for 100 miles – need I say more? I will be adding him in the near future and early indications are that he will come in at 4:1.
I’ll cover this more later in the week, but the weather for Cayuga Trails 50 looks like it will be a factor. Early indications are for a humid day with temps around 80. Welcome to Summer in New York.
