Hiroko Okiyama – JPN – 46 (Female)
A very accomplished performer from Japan. Hiroko was age group winner for last year’s Trans Europe Stage race (2796 miles in 64 stages).
She has also covered 137.9 miles in 24 hours and won the classic Greek Spartathlon in 2000.
I’m told Hiroko has pushed up her pace and is currently “flying”
Hiroko is currently in 2nd place in the Women’s race, 9th overall, having covered over 350 miles so far.
