WMRA World Cup - IAAF Permit
6. Asitzgipfelberglauf 2014 & 3. MTB Hillclimb
and Salzburg Regional Championship on the 31 of august 2014
Andrea Mayr from Austria and Petro Mamo as shining winners with new course records!
14 days before the 30th Mountain Running Championships in Casette di Massa (ITA), the international top stars of the mountain running came from 19 countries to a final form validation in Saalfelden Leogang. The conditions were not ideal: Saturday’s rain had made the course especially in the middle part extremely muddy and slippery, but cold foggy weather with no rain was still better than summer hot. The results are witnessing how strong the competition was: in men’s’ race 27 runners finished the race below 55minutes (in 2013 just 16) and 9 women below one hour (in 2013 only 2). In the men’s race the World Cup leading 8 runners were on the start and in women’s race five from top seven!
Both winners improved the course records; Petro Mamo, his own from 2013, for almost one minute and Andrea Mayr, the current European Champion, for almost five minutes!
