Results Day 1 ready: Rain and Thunder

News - by Jan Kocbach, 30 July 2008 10:00 PM

The results from the first race in Nordvestgaloppen are now ready. You will find the results in the Events section.

The competitors were greated by wonderful, warm weather - and many of the runners who came early to Voss had unforgettable mountain hikes with view to the Fjords around Voss.

The surprise was however huge when a big thunderstorm with hail of more than diameter 1 cm suddenly appeared about one third into the startfield. The rain and thunder continued for more than an hour - but still most competitors seemed happy with the first day of Nordvestgaloppen 2008.

994 participants from 22 countries!

I hope that I have some good runs and make good route choice decisions with as few errors as possible

Look most forward to

I am looking forward to some excellent courses and running on maps that I have never seen before. The terrain will be different to what we have in western Canada and I hope I will not need to look out for bears. I am excited to visit this area of Norway, the people, the villages and towns, and I will spend some time hiking in the mountains. Also there is a knitting museum near Bergen that I want to visit.
