Jim Walmsley wins WSER, shattering his own course record

Walmsley wins the 2019 Western States Endurance Run

Jim Walmsley has just shattered his own course record at the 2019 Western States Endurance Run. The old course record of 14:30:04, which he set just last year, has fallen by a shocking 21 minutes. Walmsley came across the line in 14:09:28.

The course record holder ran away from the field from the gun. That’s 100 miles and just over 14 hours of running solo at 5:16 per kilometre.

Jared Hazen is expected shortly and will also likely be under the old course record.

Walmsley has certainly asserted himself as one of the strongest overall runners in the world. In the last calendar year he’s broken the WSER course record twice and run a 1:04:00 half-marathon which has qualified him for the 2020 Olympic Marathon trials.

Overall and women’s results to follow.
