Breaking News - Final Stage - Bhutan

Since 12 months, some 50 persons from 22 countries decided to leave their comfort zone and signed up for Goballimits' Bhutan - The Last Secret 5th edition - a multi-stage race in a little known country, Bhutan.  6 days ago, they started this race and experienced this amazing country by way of running through 200km through it.  They saw stupas after stupas, ran with cows and mules,  tackled many endless ascends, ran in rain/mud, had Bhutanese hot stone baths, ate lots of chilly cheese (Bhutan style) , laughed together in the evenings, shared a beer at night (or day), and they finally reached the  most spectacular finishing line at the renowned Tiger's Nest Monastery with happy smiling faces.  

Kurt Alderweireldt from Belgium became the champion male of the race, Michael Traub is the second male in this race while Loz Wong from Hk/U.K. is the third.  Both Michael and Loz are first time GlobalLimits runners while Kurt already finished on the podium in GlobalLImits Cambodia 2016.  In the lady's group, Sabina Bachinelli from Italy, Ruthann Sheahan from Ireland and Wiwin Leung from HK took the first, second and third place respectively.  

Congratulations to all runners for their strong performance and to all the volunteers, doctors and course markers for their excellent support.

The race was concluded with the award ceremony at the Zhiwaling hotel at the foot of the Tiger's Nest Monastery.  The former Chief Justice of Bhutan, His Excellency Mr Sonam Topgay, presented the top 3 male and female prizes.
