No less than 15 runners have covered 50K or more within 4 hours!
Among them three Belgian runners on positions 2, 10 and 15: Lucien Taelman, Paul Beckers and Etienne van Acker. So the Belgium team ranks no 1 for the moment, followed by Russia, France, Latvia and Slovakia.
In the womens field, Edith Berces (Hungary) has taken the lead, shortly followed by Lioudnila Kalimina, Itrina Reutovich and Irina Koval, all from Russia. No surprise that in the team ranking after 4 hours these Russians lead, followed by France and Japan, Hungary and USA.
PS We hope that the intermediate results after 6 hours will appear on the website of De Keien around 20:30 local time (Mid European Summer Time = Greenwich Mean Time plus two hours)
Please note that the intermediate results after 3 hours are now available on the website of the club De Keien (= Dutch for ‘The Aces’):
