On Saturday, September 25, another VII Utramarathon Nowe Granice took place.
After the pandemic break, the event returned to its original format, i.e. running and / or cycling around Zielona Góra. The total distance is 103 km.
It has been a long time since I took part in mass events (not counting the Bacchus Run during Winobranie), because they did not take place for obvious reasons. So as soon as the opportunity arose, I decided to participate. Initially, I planned to run alone 23 km, but eventually I managed to persuade Hubert to ride a bicycle for 80 km. Therefore, we took part in the duathlon relay, which had two stages:
- my 23 km run,
- 80 km cycling undertaken by Hubert.
The start of the race was at 6:00, when it was still dark. We had to have a flashlights with us, the so-called headlamp to know where to run – the more so as the route led through forests. I reached the finish line in Jarogniewice after exactly 2 hours. There, Hubert was waiting for me, and started his part of the route.
Around 11:00 am I waited at the finish line for Hubert, where we snapped a souvenir photo.
21 teams took part in the Utramarathon. We were 10th with time 5:12. We consider the result to be good, the more so as we did not prepare ourselves for this event.
Congratulations to the boys on such a great result and determination to cover so many kilometers on a Saturday, September morning 🙂
