Eiger Ultra-Trail® – Results
The Eiger Ultra-Trail® was a new race of this 2015 Ultra-Trail® World Tour. Due to terrible weather and storm alerts, the organizers had to modify the course and stop a lot of runners at several points. It was a hard call to make, Congratulations to the staff for having handled that situation with professionalism.
The local Urs Jenzer (SWI) made the best of his knowledge of the beautiful course (101km, 6.700m of vertical gain) to win in 11:44:31. Jason Schlarb (USA) takes the second place in 11:50:58 ahead of David Quelhas (POR) in 12:27:37.
Caroline Chaverot (FRA) wins a second 2015 UTWT race in a row in 12:45:41 (6th overall!), ten minutes ahead of Andrea Huser (SWI) in 12:52:43 and Francesca Canepa (ITA) in 13:13:47.
See you all in Chamonix at the end of August!
