Yading, CHI – 29km + 2,345m
Set in the Sichuan mountains, it’s probably one of the most spectacular races on the circuit and also the highest. At 4,664m runners are battling for oxygen.
“I never expected to be in front of Ruth Croft and I got really quite emotional but they were tears of happiness rather than of sorrow!”
Despite a raging blizzard which greeted the runners at the highest point, two new winners emerged on the circuit. After nine years competing on the Series, Andorran Oscar Casal Mir was ecstatic with his win and course record. Briton Holly Page conquered the elements and the podium, her first win on the Series.
