Week in Review: May 10-16: Volcanoes, Records and Relays
Welcome to our second installment of Week in Review. It was a fast week for the running world, covering distances from 800m to 84km. Whatever distance you prefer, it is certainly getting exciting as racing season begins to blossom. Let’s jump right in.
Luis Alberto Hernando and Anna Frost take first at Transvulcania 2014
This legendary ultramarathon race covers 83km and over 4,000m of elevation up and over volcanoes on the beautiful Canary Islands. The race begins early in the morning before the sun rises and the participants begin their ascent in the dark, relying on their headlamps and creating a sea of swirling lights that illuminate the country-side.
