Frenchman Didier Sessegolo, last years No Finish Line winner and the top multiday runner in the world this year, generated another excellent performance of 900,775 km to take first place. Orkney’s and the UK’s top multiday runner William Sichel climbed the leader board throughout the race to repeat the first and second placings of 2012. Third placed Manuel Da Cunha edged out Robert Miorin by less than two km for the podium spot.
Last years winner Sarah Barnett returned to Monaco with injuries which limited her mileage. First place went to last years second place finisher Mimi Chevillon who improved by some 36 km despite the stoppage. In second place was Catherine Massif-Perreau who ran for the French 24 hour team at Steenbergen in May. Annick Fouchard Djebli also improved on her 2012 performance to take third place.
If the success of the event can be determined by numbers of participants then this year was the best so far with 9,021 participants, also an improvement on the 2012 race. The huge numbers of people on the course, especially in the final few hours inevitably had an effect on the rhythm of the 8 day runners but this unique project has a great atmosphere in a fabulous setting and is well supported by the Monaco Royal Family who come each year to the start and finish and even come to clock up km of their own collectively helping to run 271251,379 km – thereby raising over €270,000 for charity.
