Adriatic Meeting in San Marino
Last weekend I was running the Adriatic Meeting in San Mariono
, a new country for me.
Friday it was arranged a short middle distance in a small forest just outside San Marino City. I was running quite well, but lost around 30 seconds to both the 4th and 8th control on the second loop. (To the 4th I had to climb a high fence not marked on the map, and the 8th control was probably set out on the wrong tree, so most runners lost some time here.) My result was a 4th place, 1 min behind Francois Gonon.
Saturday a sprint was held in the Historic Centre of San Marino. This was the main goal for my trip to San Marino, because I know it would be a big challenge to do a clean race there. The map was very detailed, and difficult to read even in scale 1:3000. Some places it was extremely challenging to find the best route choice. I lost only some second on a few route choices, and was happy with my performance and that I could win the race 6 seconds in front of Tomas Dlabaja
