2011wchwinnerm.jpgEleven nations took medals at the 27th World Mountain Running Championships in Tirana, Albania on 11th September 2011.
The Albanian LOC were impressive with their marketing and hospitality. The beach resort of Durres provided the ‘athletes village' and offered cool accommodation in the oppressive heat that many struggled with on race day. Many athletes will reflect on their wonderful experiences with a particularly welcoming host city of Tirana and the volunteer ambassadors that provided and enriching initiation to Albania.
A fabulous welcome from the Albanian President and Minister of Sport was backed up with five hours of live television coverage. Their welcome preceded a professional and entertaining opening ceremony. 
The elite mountain runners from across the world were treated to an insight into the culture of Albania and the impressive landscapes it has to offer, which included having the highest average altitude in Europe- perhaps a perfect fitting for the sport of mountain running!

An historical moment for mountain running: 27. World Mountain Running Championships 2011 in Tirana. - 07 September 2011 Print
2011previewwch.jpgTirana, the capital of mysterious Albania will host the 27th World Mountain Running Championships.
Although Albania is a mountainous country with the highest peak Korab (2764m), the mountain running as sport discipline has just stared to develop in this part of the world.
It is one of the first time, that a country with no Mountain running tradition is hosting the Championships. Even more, in 2011 Albanian runners participated World's top event for the first time.
It was a great job for the WMRA Delegates, Bruno Gozzelino and Raimondo Balicco to coordinate the work of the LOC that accepted the job with plenty of enthusiasm and energy with the clear goal - to organize a perfect sport event.
