As the majestic Brandberg Mountain looms over the course, so did the sun today. it’s been punishing for our runners. 

With temperatures reaching 37 degrees by 9 o’clock this morning, and rising further through the day, our runners knew they were in for a tough time. Everyone had a story to tell in camp tonight. When you’re pushing to find the limits of what you’re capable of, there are inevitably battles to overcome. There was plenty of relief on the faces of the runners as they crossed the line.

The scenery today has been stunning though and spirits were high as the sun set and the sky turned a lurid purple and the temperature dropped.

Kristina Madsen achieved another stunning victory today and she stays on track to beat her course record and take the overall race win. A cracking performance today from Jack Tunney saw him finish level with Bernard Dufour who had pushed Kristina hard in the morning before falling away. They teamed up to form a strong partnership helping them achieve joint 2nd position. Christina Khinast was the 2nd woman to arrive and Andreas Gast the 3rd man.

Other bonds are forming through the field. Marie-Louise Alemany and Vanessa Kellie have created a very ‘chatty’ team approach and are now the joint third women on the leaderboard. Craig Williams and Lee Quinn also forming another strong team to take joint 10th overall.

Congratulations to all of our runners. They’ll sleep well tonight.
