Whilst Ašai runners blaze in stadiums, meanwhile both of our "foreign" members Kaspars Lapsa and Lana Lindermane, each did their distance in the traditional running event - Cesis Eco Trail. At 6 o' clock in the morning, Kaspars Lapsa started his 85km long trail journey, despite his recent feat of running the 107 km long race from Rīga to Valmiera, which could have worried him about his energy reserves, however it didn't and Kaspars finished with a great tempo and doing it in 10 hours and 21 minutes!!! If the previous year he did a distance 5km shorter than this in 11 hours and 3 minutes, then this years' performance is excellent! Kaspars got 20th place amongst all long distance runners. However, Lana Lindermane in the 13km trail run got 2nd place in her age group. Lana has gotten her second pedestal in her last two races. Truly proud of both of them!
