bike, Championship, Hungarian, Hungary, race report, run, running, swim, triathlon, Viktoria Brown, World Championship -

This was the race I have been training for for the last 2 years! It was cancelled last year but luckily it went ahead this year. Normally the Long Course Championship for ITU is a different distance than Ironman, I guess just to differentiate themselves somehow. But I prefer the Ironman distance which is what it was this year! Every now and then they choose a venue of an existing race for the championship and run it at the classic full distance of 3800m (2.4mi) swim, 180km (112mi) bike and marathon run of 42.2km (26.2mi).  Hungarian friends, left to right:...

24h, Canadian, race report, run, running, ultrarunning, Viktoria Brown -

2020, Backyard Ultra, Canada, Canadian, Championship, race report, ultra running, Viktoria Brown, World Championship -

There were 21 countries and Canada came third behind Belgium and the US. Personally I came 7th out of the 15 Canadians and 62nd out of the 300 participants worldwide. I ran for 34 hours covering 227 kms. Day 1 - still smiling. Before the rain started. I'm disappointed in my...

2020, bike, Championship, ExtremeMan, Hungary, Nagyatád, race report, run, swim, triathlon -

„You know what would be a LOT of fun? To do that IM distance race in Hungary” - I wrote to my coach, responding to his comments saying I should be doing things that I find fun now that my whole season was wiped out, including my planned A-race of the ITU Long-Course Worlds in Amsterdam, Holland. He was referring to our local unofficial TT races that I had fun participating in. There was no response to my email - just pure silence. I don't blame him, he was probably thinking „you must be kidding me” - the race was less...
