The penultimate race of the Summer Grand Prix saw 82 happy runners cross the finish line.
This week we had some very close results:
Ankurika from Austria was the first woman in 20:50 followed by Susan Marshall (New Zealand) one second behind her.
Grakak from Perth, Australia was the first male runner in 19:49, with Robi (Hungary) three seconds behind and then Pataka (Czech) another three seconds behind Robi!
In the Women Vet 50 category, Tavishi from Australia was the fastest runner, but Tsetsegdelger (Mongolia) was only one second behind her.
Suswara Payne from Bristol, England has reappeared to win the Vet 50 Men category, pipping Marek (Slovakia) to the post by one second.
In the Men Vet 60 category first place and second place were also seperated by a single second: Vandan-Ochir 21:54, Damdnjav 21:55 (both from Mongolia).
Even though we are all running in our seperate parts of the world, it is very competitive. Perhaps this is the effect of the current Olympic Games!
