    KILIAN JORNET AND MAUDE MATHYS AT WORLD CUP #5 SIERRE-ZINAL IT’S TIME FOR HISTORY

    It was the day of falling records in Zinal, Switzerland for round 5 of the World Mountain Running World Cup and it was Kilian Jornet Burgada (Esp) who arrived home first breaking the record from Jonathan Wyatt (Nzl) by clocking an incredible 2h25.35 for the 31km mountainous course.  Not long after the women's record was also smashed when Maude Mathys (Sui) with a dominating start to finish run surprised all with her powerful performance taking 5 minutes from the record held by Anna Pichrtova (Cze) since 2008 
  • World Cup Round 5 comes to Sierre Zinal

    World Cup Round 5 comes to Sierre Zinal

    The World Mountain Running Association World Cup comes to a peak point of the season with the iconic Sierre-Zinal in Switzerland. This year the Swiss race has assembled the best ever elite field in mountain running: something impossible to miss for lovers of offroad running. With such a field, organizers think that Jonathan Wyatt’s race record of 2h29.12 from 2003 could be really in danger.  Legendary six times Sierre-Zinal winner Kilian Jornet Burgada (Esp) will be the favourite but he is up against ultrarunner Jim Walmsley (Usa) who clocked last May the new World Record along 50miles.  Jim has good history in the shorter distance running so expect him to push Jornet hard even if it's Jim's first time racing it.

    Abraham and Tunstall conquer Grossglockner, Douglas and McCormack lead the world cup rank.

    Sarah Tunstall (GBR) and Filimon Abraham (ERI) took very deserving wins at the GrossGlockner Mountain Race in Austria.  It was the third round of the WMRA Mountain Running World Cup and both women's and men's races were incredibly exciting with changes to the podium positions right up until the final few hundred metres.  A spectacular feature of the Austrian race that takes place beneath the shadow of Austria's highest peak, the 3700m Grossglockner towering above the finish area across the glacier, is the amazing crowds and support and cheering as the runners zig-zag up the final 2km that ring out across the valley.
