Will Records Fall At Trofeo Vanoni?

It's been announced that Lucy Murigi will run at Vanoni for the first time in this year of the 'super edition'. The organizers, CSI Morbegno, after already securing the Italian Mountain Running Team, the podium from the Italian Relay Championship and the female winner of the World Cup, have announced that Lucy Murigi will also be lining up.
Murigi was the 2017 and 2018 World Champion, winner of Sierre-Zinal in the same years, as well as this year's winner at Smarna Gora. With a line-up including 2019 World Cup winner Sarah McCormack and Lucy Murigi the women's record could well be under threat. The 36th Vanoni women's race starts on Sunday 27 October 2019 at 11.00 a.m.
The line-ups for all the races are exceptional this year and you couldn't bet against any of the records falling. Giovanni Ruffoni from the LOC says "You are all invited to Morbegno. This year we really made the bang. For the "normal" athletes the opportunity to compete side by side with the top runners, for fans the joy of supporting and see live the best specialists in the world."
