A good result in the Ephesus 61k event in Turkiye

The trail racing season started for Mirsie last weekend. This was the Ephesus 61k event. It started and finished in Selcuk in south west Turkiye and which went through the ancient city of Ephesus. Built in the 10th century BC it’s a stunning UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Mirsie admittedly wasn’t in the greatest of form and suffered from stomach cramps during the race. Nevertheless she finished second in her age group and in the top ten of female finishers. Result! She said afterwards:

“I had done very little training… however it was a very pleasant trail with lots of beautiful wild flowers and olive groves…. A lovely atmosphere.”

She’s now off training in the Greek National Park of Mount Olympus to get ready for her Istria 100k UTMB race in Croatia next month.
