CANFRANC CANFRANC MARATHON: THE FAVORITES :
There are some really outstanding local and international athletes taking part, which is sure to shake up the World Cup qualification further.
WMRA LONG DISTANCE :
In the 45k race stand out Peter Frano (SVK), winner of Tatra SkyMarathon this year, and Raul Criado (ESP), who was third in Tatra SkyMarathon and has already signed several silvers here. Ugaitz Artola (ESP) will lead the always talented field of Basque runners in this race. Charlotte Morgan (GBR) shines in the women’s race.
The 2018 WMRA Long Distancfe world champion currently ranks third in the World Cup after winning Tatra Race Run, plus bronze at Tatra SkyMarathon. She will face the 2020 runner-up here, Eva Mesado (ESP) as a key rival, with Olivia Magnone (FRA) as an alternate candidate. This is how Charlotte and Peter smiled in the previous outing
With a cool but calm weather, perfect for running, the peloton started at 10am. The great duel of the day, without a doubt, that of the Slovak Peter Frano with the local hero Raul Criado. The canfranero already has several silvers here, against great rivals. It was the same one who encouraged Peter to compete here, that’s how they all went out this morning
RAÜL CRIADO AND CHARLOTTE MORGAN LEAD CANAL ROYA
At the halfway point of the race, after almost 3 hours of it, Raül leads the men’s ppr in front of rivals such as Morales and Frano.
In the female category, Charlotte Morgan lives up to her status as a favorite and goes through the lead. Unlike Raúl, the British woman runs without poles because she is not used to using them.
Will this bet take its toll, on a track that adds up to D + 4,000m? This is how our partner Corinne Crabe portrayed them. At the Candanchu pass, Peter was already marching in front of Raúl with just 30 “between them, pursued from behind by Fran and Iñigo running alongside.
The swords were still high as they began the ascent towards the Tuca Blanca and the final stretch of career.
For her part, Charlotte Morgan continued to give a show and not only expanded her advantage as a female leader, but was already fighting to get into the absolute top5.
In this section it was already seventh.
