Nearly 4000 runners determined the finalists for the sprint distance in the area of Bad Harzburg’s Kurpark. They will compete on Monday in Goslar. “To have to run around all those people and houses was difficult but interesting at the same time” explained Kirsten Gransted from Sweden who started in the class W75. With obvious pride she tells how 1966 she won the third place at the World Masterships in Finland. Meanwhile Britain’s Nick Jones characterised the course differently: “The direction changes so often in the park and near the tennis courts”.
