Race-Calendar Newsletter | Week Ending 27th January 2013

Hey runners,

It’s been another big week of running around the world, and another massive week at Race-Calendar.com. Within our small team, a very cool wedding took place, and brings the Race-Calendar.com family even closer!

So what happened this week around the world? Some great races took place including the 9th International Neujahrsmarathon Zurich (actually is was a couple of weeks ago), and the 2013 Tri-Adventure Race in the UK. You can read the reports and see the photos below.

Race Reports & Photos:

  • Race Report: Bath Skyline 10km, UK, 20th January 2013 Over 170 runners braved near arctic conditions to take place in the 3rd Bath Skyline 10km event of the winter. There had been some doubt about whether the race would go ahead, but thanks to Bath Golf Club who allowed us to reroute the course over their fairways, we were ready and excited for the first Snowy Skyline 10km!
  • Race Reports: Garstang 10km Road Race & Chernobyl 10km, Lancashire, UK Last weekend saw a small number of athletes from Lancaster & Morecambe AC take part in the Chernobyl 10km road race in Preston. Conditions were tough; the route was slippy underfoot in parts and there was a strong wind, but despite this the hardy runners put in some good performances.
  • Neujahrsmarathon Zurich, Switzerland – 1 January 2013  The highlight of this first IAAF/AIMS marathon of the year 2013 was the clear course record set by Astrid Mueller (SUI). She profited from optimal weather conditions at this midnight marathon and finally beat her previous own course record by more than 15 minutes(!), finishing the marathon in less than 3 hours. Abby Knight (USA) arrived second and Micaela Racky (GER) third.
  • Tri-Adventure January 2013 Race Report The morning of Tri-Adventure’s first Trail and Sprint of the 2013 season dawned with spectacular beauty, a glistening blanket of crisp white snow decorated the already beautiful Swinley Forest.
