Emu 6 Day Race 2017 – Updates – 20 Hours

Johan van der Merwe

Johan van der MerweThe Emu 6 Day Race 2017 got underway yesterday at noon, local time, in sunny condtions with 86 starters. Early leaders after 20 hours show Johan van der Merwe on course to reach his goal and I quote him as posting on his fb page “The World 6-day multiday-running record, will be written behind my name as from 10 May 2017 at 12:00.” Nothing like an optimistic attitude. That goal is 1028 km and we wish Johan the best.
Sumie Inagaki leads the 20 women taking part in this race.
