Petro Mamu wins Austria's Feuerkogel Berglauf

Eritrea's world champion mountain runner was flanked by Kenyan challengers, 2nd and 3rd, at the recent Feuerkogel Race  prize presentation.

I took part in this high-class mountain race and finished 7th of 9 runners in my age group.

Running over the new (shorter) 10 km course was a joy. And having the men and ladies run over the same distance (not 11km and 9km as before) was a great improvement too.
