Trans-Europe 2009 Day 64:From southern Italy to the northernmost point in Europe, the day that all have been waiting for but a day with mixed feelings for some. A way of life has come to an end. The routines and rituals that began over 2 months ago have served their purpose and another world is calling the runners home. Time for tired bodies to rest.

Running a consistent race, Rainer Koch from Germany finished the 4,500 km race over 24 hours ahead of second place Japan’s Takasumi Senoo. After an early battle with Rene Strosny, only a minute apart after 2 weeks of running Rainer gradually began to stretch his lead and won almost all the stages after Day 16. Takasumi and Rene finished just 5 minutes apart.

In the ladies race, 55 year old Furuyama Takako took first place ahead of Germany’s Elke Streicher and experienced runner Kazuko Kaihata.

Congratulations are in order for the all the runners who have attemped this remarkable event and to Ingo Schulze, the Race director for organising the whole thing. 45 of the 67 starters completed the distance but it was a tremendous experience for everyone and I hope to hear soon some stories from these heroes.
