Moun­tain run­ner Rob­bie scores at Com­mon­wealth

Trail Running (UK) - - Warm- Up | Trail News -

British in­ter­na­tional moun­tain run­ner Rob­bie Simp­son fin­ished a sur­prise third in the Com­mon­wealth Games marathon, in hot con­di­tions.

“I ini­tially tar­geted a top 10 place,” Simp­son told TR. “But the weather fore­cast was show­ing such hot con­di­tions and I re­alised it would be an un­pre­dictable race, so I aimed as high as pos­si­ble.

“I’ve ran a lot in hot weather and high al­ti­tudes where I’ve had to adapt my race strat­egy to deal with the con­di­tions,” he said.
