A very intense October 2018
A very intense October
During this past month, we attended the 19th and 20th races of the Ultra-trail® World Tour 2018. As well as three Discovery races.
Salomon Cappadocia Ultra-trail®
It is in an idyllic landscape, magical even, that we arrive in Cappadocia. The race takes place along the fairy chimneys and unique valleys of Cappadocia, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The decor puts us directly in the mood of the race: It will be magical.
And for good reason, international runners represent 45% of the total number of participants, including 30% of the runners of whom, are women! A very good performance for these ladies who are more and more present, and rockin’ these kinds of events.
The 119 km race is completed by the fastest, Andrea MACCHI, in 11:12, the Italian native is the big winner of the Salomon Cappadocia Ultra-trail 2018. 19 minutes separate him from Marcus SCOTNEY.
As for the women, it is Maria MITEVA NIKOLOVA who imposed herself, she arrives in 13:14, followed by Kalanova ALEXANDRA, who arrives only 11 minutes after her.

🥈 Kalanova ALEXANDRA – 13:25:28
🥉 Francesca CANEPA – 13:42:15
🥇 Andrea MACCHI – 11:12:34

Javelina Jundred Endurance Run
Javelina Jundred is the 20th race of the Ultra-trail® World Tour 2018. Once again, this year, she flaunted its inner-child’s soul and those of the participants, who keep growing from year to year, played the game and came dressed up to celebrate Halloween at the same time!
Another fact, in keeping up with the spirit of the race, is both exceptional and crazy. A 15-year-old boy entered this crazy 100-mile race and finished it in 25 hours!
In the men’s locker, Patrick REAGAN, winner of the year 2017 makes his comeback stronger than ever, and finishes the race this year again, in 13h42. He was also able to maintained a large lead over second place, Dave STEVENS who arrives almost 2 hours later, at 15h39.
On the woman side, it is Darcy PICEU who stood out. She finishes the race in 18h49. Followed not too far behind by Dana ANDERSON, who finishes the race in 19h31, and Tonya KEYES taking the 3rd place with a time of 19h50.
