Tane at World Mountain Running Champs

Well I'm sure Tane, will let us know in more detail about the World Mountain running champs in due course, but for pre race action check out his blog, and for the results check this site.

Tane was a very impressive 78th, less than a minute behind fellow kiwi and Taranaki mountain running sensation Dougan Butler. Glenn Hughes of Wellington was another couple of minutes ahead. Unfortunately because there were only three men the kiwis were not eligible for a team result. The race was dominated by Ugandans. The top four places going to the former domain of Idi Amin.

On the side, if it works for athletics star Zane Robertson to live in Kenya, or now Ethiopa, perhaps young kiwi mountain runners should consider Uganda! (National Squad training camp anyone?)
