Well how about that Kilian Jornet smashed the Robb Jebb course record from 2005 by a solid 6 minutes. Nobody guessed that one! That takes his winning streak at Zegama to 5 in a row and 7 in total. Kilian is just unbelievable on this course, he knows it inside and out and can run it comfortably hard, if there is such a thing.
But what about the top 4 this year all beating the Robb Jebb course record and the top 8 all under 4 hours. The standard just keeps getting raised.
Marco de Gasperi a great sparring partner and friend of Kilian came in second just two minutes later and just barely 19 seconds ahead of Luis Alberto Hernando. A thrilling race to follow and especially if you were tracking it via the live feed from www.irunfar.com.
In the women’s race it was the American Stevie Kremer back for some more podium entertainment at Zegama and this time she swapped third place for 1st place with a 4:46:43 shaving a cool 3 minutes off her time in 2013. Well deserved.
Elisa Desco took second place just two weeks after her win at Transvulcania VK and Maite Elizonda Mayora third place after her second place at Transvulcania Ultra.
