Andrea Mayr from Austria and Petro Mamo as shining winners with new course records! - 01 September 2014 Print
2014leogangmayr.jpg14 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!

2014grintovecwinners.jpg223 runners from 10 countries gathered on the start line of the 16th Grintovec race in a beautiful valley of Kamniska Bistrica 25km north from Ljubljana.
The weather was unpredictable – the day before the race a thunderstorm made the 10km long course with almost 2000m elevation gain wet and slippery and rain was also expected in the time when the runners were competing on the steep slopes of 2552 m high Grintovec; in this case, the race would be stopped after 6,5km for safety reasons. Luckily, the weather was not so bad; some of the runners even enjoyed the chilly temperatures.
