24- 48 hr at Bornholm Denmark – This weekend

Posted on May 23, 2008 by

This weekend sees the running of the 24 hr and 48hr at Bornholm in Denmark. Courtesy of my good friend, Jesper Olsen (who is crewing this weekend), I expect to receive some video, photos and sound bytes. This will be from his Life Pilot device that he will be using on his upcoming World Run 2. I will be uploading these files to this post when received.

Hopefully this online experiment works and you the reader reaps the benefit.

36 hours

As expected, Yiannis Kouros is leading with 359.7km. He is apparently now walking.  Second is L Christoffersen from Denmark who has covered 281.3km. The Womens race could be very interesting with H Vauhkonnen from Finland leading with 223.3km.  C Aistrup from Denmark has 213.5km and is catching the leader slowly.

At 2am it is 4 degrees, clear and light wind!

News flash:

At the 24hr mark, Yiannis Kouros has completed 266.35km. This is believed to be a new World age group record for 24hr road. Second was A Thunberg with 237.8km. This was a pb by over 40km! Was advised a short time later that he has pulled out of doing the 48hr.

  1. Yiannis Kouros (Greece) – 142.1km
