Harmer and Craine conquer Kima

Ed Harmer and Noel Craine conquered one of the toughest races of any kind over in Italy over the weekend. The Kima Sky marathon measures in at a monster 52km, crosses 7 passes and climbs a massive 8400 metres. There’s not much running in it but the terrain is highly technical, with ropes, ladders, snowfields and moraines to cross. The record was a massive 6hrs 19mins set by Kilian Jornet.

It was a relatively close race for the two Eryri runners, Harmer finishing excellently in 92nd in just under 9 hours and 28mins with Craine back in 11th in 9hrs and 50mins. Kilian Jornet was again the winner in a new record of 6 hrs 12 mins, 143 runners finished with 48 being timed out!
