News : A spectacular ‘warning’ long run for the Valencia Marathon
It will be one of the names to follow in the Valencia Marathon on December 6. Julien Wanders, that white athlete training among Kenyan athletes in the Rift Valley, is one of the present and future values of the global fund. Holder of the best European brands in history in 5, 10 and 20 kilometers, the Swiss has lived in the African country for more than five years, where he is more than acclimatized and spends most of the season. Even his partner is Kenyan and lives with him.
‘Punctured’ in Monaco
Julien did not have his best career in the Monaco Diamond League about two months ago. He went to the appointment in the Principality with high expectations and with a better mark in the distance of 13:13:84 achieved just over a year ago in Lausanne, on his land. But from the beginning things did not work out for him, he never got to catch the rhythm of the leading group and even ended up bent by Joshua Cheptegei on the Ugandan’s path to the World Record. In fact, there is a significant video of Wanders cheering him on as he passes him on that final stretch to the world record.
The latest insanity in the form of a roll
Wanders always shares his Strava workouts with his followers. There he hung about three months ago a very high level shoot at 3:08 / km at 2,200 meters high. Almost nothing. But it is that the last ‘long run’ that the Swiss has climbed is even more significant. And he has even dared to qualify the training as ‘moderate’. To all this must be added that it completes a positive unevenness of 420 meters. Curiously, the fastest part of the Swiss has been at km 38 (3:01 / km) and the slowest at 26 (4:06 / km).
