For Bed Bahadur Sunuwar it was a magical moment for the 28 year old. “This is the first time racing in the Yunnan area as have raced in Hong Kong previously. The first climb was very steep, but the views were nice. The local people were so happy as always big smiles on their faces when I ran by them” said the shy Sunuwar a Nepalese army runner giving permission to attend the event next to his coach Ramesh.
The event started in the scenic Three Pagodas of Dali near the iconic Garuda Plaza in 30-degree heat with blue skies marking the horizon.
For Olya Korzh it was business as usual. “I enjoyed the views and thought the top was very nice on the ridgeline as liked it up there. Long road going down. The organizers were so nice looking after us and the local people so friendly” said Russian Korzh making the trip from Hong Kong who won the overall Women’s 50km skymarathon in 8 hours 30 minutes 54 seconds.
