The race winner, top European runner David Schneider of Switzerland, smashed the course record by more than 4 minutes and won the third running of the Rax Mountain Race in Austria by more than 6 minutes! An amazing achievement. Another Swiss runner, Gustav Ulrich triumphed in M60's Men's Race.

In warm conditions and running over a tough course I was happy with my second M60 place.

Runner number 66, that's me, on the Törl path (1600 mtrs above sea level). Note the spectators perched on the rock in the background.
