Athens 1000 mile – a quick update

Another roving reporter has given me an update – thanks to Matt Fawson for this from race-side in Athens :

Matt has been …”down at the track yesterday evening.

Can report that it is indeed a warm, partially cloudy day in Athens and is around 15 degrees.

All runners so far looking very strong.

Wolfgang Schwerk had taken the lead by yesterday evening and looked poised to try and create a comfortable leading gap from the start. Early days though (quite literally!).

Track varies from asphalt to tight gravel.

Whilst the heat may not be to everyone’s liking, am not sure how good the drainage from the track would be in the event of rain. Let’s hope we don’t find out :-)

Hopefully there may be more from Matt as the race continues.
