The Ultra-Trail® World Tour 2019 has begun!

07 Φεβ 2019

Like every year, the Ultra-Trail® World Tour circuit started in Hong Kong with the Vibram Hong Kong 100. As usual, the trail was amazing, but, this year, it was even more difficult than the past editions. 1842 runners took the start under a severe heat, and 549 runners didn’t finish the race, 10% more than the last edition... Proving the difficulty of this year’s edition...

 

Again, Chinese are present on places of honor, but this year even more as they are on each step of both feminine and masculine podiums! Congratulations to them! The winners of the competition are Lu Yangchun (11: 43: 20) for the women and Shen Jiasheng (10: 22: 02) for the men. Despite the difficult climatic conditions, both winners beat the previous records.


It was the first 100 kilometers for the winner Lu Yangchun and it gave her luck since she crossed the fnish line 34 minutes before the second contestant Xian Fuzhao! She asked Yao Miao, the winner of the last edition, for advices. Yao recommended to do the race at her own rhythm without forgetting to eat and drink!

 

During the race, we also had the opportunity to see Gediminas Grinius, winner of the 2016 UTWT circuit, who arrived in 6th position on the male ranking.

 

Top 3 Men:

1. Shen Jiasheng (China) 10:22:02

2. Liang Jing (China) 10:35:50

3. Zhang Zhenlong (China) 10:41:46
