Cape Town - South African star trail runner Ryan Sandes has finished fourth in the 100km Ultra Trail Australia in
the famous Blue Mountains National Park.
"I had a
tough but really rewarding day out in the Blue Mountains. I had forgotten how
brutal the course is with fast runnable sections combined with never ending
stairs and rocky trails. I started off conservatively and during the race it
felt like I could not get my legs into fifth gear and I was a bit sluggish at
times. I however finished strong and was moving through the field which is nice
to know with my main goal race Ultra Trail Mont Blanc 100 miler coming up in
August. I am stoked with how things played out and want to think my dream
givers and everyone for their incredible support, said Sandes.
