  1. RUN
    good Rennsteiglauf 73 km 09:14 12:12 pace

    Done. That was one brutal sone of a run. The event managers clearly lie on their homepage, claiming the run only has 1400m elevation gain, every GPS-device said it to be at least 1800! Doesn´t seem... read more

    Last year at this race I literally had my ass handed to me, being forced to take an official short cut to avoid becoming a DNFer due to the cut-off.

      There are so many lessons here, Benjamin, for everyone to learn. They say 99 percent of a race's effort occurs above the neck - you proved that with this ultra. Great job, by the way.
