“Veni, vidi, vici” also for year 2014. One of the most technical but fun trail race in Taiwan – OtterBox Action Asia X-Trail Taiwan 17 km in Maokong. Hot weather in combination with this difficult trail makes this race really original and very challenging.
It was my first race in Taiwan in 2012 when was running during the heavy rain. Last year first overall and this year defend my 1st place (same time as last year), Ruth was behind me just few minutes (she progress lot and I have to be more and more careful on her 🙂 ). Sasha 4th man, Erica 3rd woman in 17 km. Yujui took great 7th place. Italianos Damiano (lost way) and Michele in first twenty finishers. Eva’s mother (62 years old) was surprisingly on great 3rd place for women in 9 km course, amazing. Eva didn’t race, but helped organise the race event, thank you.
I tested our new top tank shirt with logo of Taiwan Beast Runners 跑山獸, even it is little on the body I like it. Good for run marathon and hot fast races without carrying bag.
