Finland - currently 1-2-3 in the Men's 24hr race

At 6hrs, Finland leads the field in the Men’s 24hr race, with Finnish competitors occupying the 1st, 2nd and 3rd

positions (with Scotland’s Paul Hart in 4th).

The current top 3 are :

1  – Janne Klasila with a distance of  69.03 km
2 – Kari Salomaa with a distance of 67.86 km
3 – Jari Soikkeli with a distance of 66.69 km

But with another 18 gruelling hours ahead of the runners, it is still very much anyone’s race – no-one wins a medal for leading at the quarter way mark – the winner is always the runner with the fastest average speed throughout the entire 24hrs…
