Winter, trails, darkness, and all the weather.
One last hurrah before the end of the year. Runners, get ready for a fun and festive holiday treat along the trails of Squaxin Park.
This year’s CCC 100K race from Courmayeur to Chamonix race which saw 1650 finishers and 578 DNFs.
Here are the winners:
Red Lantern: Siu Kei Maggie LAI – Hong Kong 26:34:22
Red Lantern: Mickaël KNITTEL – France 26:55:52
Again, congratulations to all finisher! And yes, I added to the winners the ‘red lanterns’, the final runners making it into the finish in Chamonix. UTMB calls the final finisher the ‘lanterne rouge‘ – the red lantern. I wanted to add them to acknowledge their performance but also give y’all an idea of the spread of time it can take to run this route. 10+hrs is fast. 26hrs is the slowest time. Everyone is a finisher and can be incredible proud of their achievement.
(PS: I added the ‘red lantern’ to the OCC results post too.)
