Enduro has a sizeable lead at the montaine summer edition. Looks to be in good shape and hoping to break his winter pb and previous course record. He'll enjoy running the course without all the wet/snow gear for a change I'm sure.
Just to correct Johns post my time was 3days 1hour 55mins. 73hours 55mins.
3days 2hours 55mins has been quoted in all reports and might become fact if not corrected now.
This is unofficial, but what was regarded as one of the most unbreakable records has been broken.
Also, I ran with Aleksandr in 2016 in Albi. 😁
I telling anyone who cared in Chamonix exactly what Robbie Britton said in his superb report on this. That is the Ultra performance of the century. A stunning stunning run. We are indeed truly privileged to be able to run alongside, against, but mostly way behind such a great athlete.
In retrospect, it's great to have seen how he evolved this performance. He was always going out at "Kouros pace", but crashing and burning in the second half... but steadily moving the crashing point further out so that he could medal at championships, and then further out so that he became the world champion, and ultimately to the point where there was no longer a crash and burn, and he is now the all-time number one.
And a nice guy too, by all accounts!
Any nutrition advice for a 45km run?
What would you bring?
In my case, nothing....burn fat
If you're going to bring something make sure that it's something you'll enjoy. Jellies, chocolate, banana, whatever
