The USA’s Zach Miller and Caroline Chaverot of France storm to convincing wins at the fifth Ultra Trail World Tour event on the pretty island of Madeira (Madeira Island Ultra Tour). Both Miller and Chaverot reset the course records in the process.
Miller (13:52:17) won by twenty minutes ahead of Spain’s Tofol Castanyer who had Frenchman Sebastien Camus only six minutes behind. Defending champion Luis Fernandes came in seventh and the top Portuguese athlete.
Chaverot (15:00:55) was once again in a race of her own. Her lead over second place Andrea Huser was a mighty eighty two minutes. Incredibly Chaverot was in eigth place overall. Third place went to Emilie Lecomte of France.
Notice how many French runners made the top ten in both the mens and womens’ fields.
