After yesterday’s full and half marathon, today was 10km race starting from Otaniemi. First start was for these strange bikes without seat and pedals, and for which rider must kick on the floor. Best time today: 21min56.
Today was the rantamaraton “beach marathon” starting and arriving in Otaniemi. Advertissements invited runners to take part to enjoy autumn landscapes.
