100km du Loire Béconnais Haut Anjou
Sunday 10th June 2007
Lars Frederiksen

Johann and I drove down there Friday night with a 'good' nights sleep on the ferry to Le Havre. Saturday noon we picked up our numbers. The organizers was pretty impressed that 2 foreigners were coming all the way from Cambridge 'just' to run the 100k. About 100 was at the start Sunday morning at 5.30 and the weather forecast said warm sunny day with risk of thunderstorms. We didn't get any rain during the day but the temperature raise to 28º C. The 25 km loop was more hilly than expected about 1000m altitude in total. We kept a speed of about 10k per hour with stops at every water station. Some of the more strange things at the water stations were beer, coffee, tea, cakes etc. We kept to our energy gels and some of the more normal stuff. I must say that I can't stand the sight of energy gels after this race.
After 60 km Johann left me behind. I had to walk a bit once in a while. We were also told that the 3rd round would be the worst, but that was nothing compared to the 4th. For the last 10 km I couldn't run any more. I had to walk the rest of the race, and that felt a long way. Johann did better but he also suffered on the last bit.
The organisers were very kind and helpful. And because we came a long way they came up with prizes for the 2 fastest (and only) foreigners:-)
The result:
49 of about 100 finished:
15th Johann Graggaber 10.32.22
26th Lars Frederiksen 11.51.56
