More 430 mile athletes reach Dawson City

By 16. February 2017ARCHIV ENGLISCH, NEWS ENGLISH

Today Daniel Benhammou (at 19:42), Jan Francke (at 20:19) and Julian Hall (at 21:34) reached our 430 mile finish line in Dawson City. Daniel (USA) who already is a 300 mile finisher took 3rd place. He said he kind of had forgotten just how long these days out there are. Jan Francke (Czech Republic) had already tried the 430 miles in 2015 and had to scratch at the time. Back then he started out too fast and got problems with his achilles. This year he took it a bit easier and it worked out great for him. He is still in really good shape. No major pains. Jan takes rank 4. Julian Hall (UK) has had problems with his achilles over the last couple of days but decided definitely not to stop this close to the finish line. So, he is suffering but with a period of rest he will recover and I am sure soon start planning his next adventure. Julian places 4th.

Now we are waiting for Boris Tramm from Germany who should be here in the early morning hours.
