The weather. Always the weather. It was quite good. Rained quite a few times which made it cold. But OK. There was a course record (Mikkel, sub 20), there was a high finisher rate (86 %) and there were good times. Henrik ran the race for four times straight. Zingo ran the race for the fifth time! That is all of the editions. This edition help the people of Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic towards the right of their own land. Mats PR:ed with 4.5 hours and the rest were pretty awesome too ...

The greatest worry was the weather, which turned out to be quite gorgeous considering the time of year. A drizzle here and there but all in all quite moderate, being a few degrees above zero during the whole race. Mikkel lead the way being the only one opting for the early train (32 km in 2:40 …). Four other runners took the later train and one did not take the train at all, calling it a night after six hours. Another casualty of race scratched after 10:30 but after that everybody (all six of them) soldiered on. A new course record was achieved by Mikkel in 20:23, Henrik now has three finishes (out of his three attempts) and Stefan and Ross pushed the limits for a close call coming in with 5,5 minutes to spare … This edition paid for the school fees (for a full year) for ten children in the Central African Republic. "The greatest of all victories is to be victorious over yourself."

I have made a small very amateurish photovideo of the first eight years of different gax races. There have been 13 events and in this movie there are images of pretty much all of them.

The race has been run

The third the gax urasunti epiphany has been run.

The weather was very fresh and with a false tint of summer promise. Even balmy during the night but no rain. That came in the morning, like an hour of downpour, that's nothing! That is what makes or breaks a finish in many runs.

This third edition had nine starters and two friends of one of the runners joining for a few hours. Next race will be in the cold wintery month of March.
