The National Team 100K is back from the World 100K Championships in Doha, Qatar. The city of Doha was a perfect venue for the 5 km course leading the athletes through the Aspire Sports Zone surrounding our modest accommodation, the world famous Torch Hotel

Despite some issues with heat and the hard surface of the course, our team enjoyed a cooler temperature with an evening start for this event and gave it their best effort setting a few PB on their way.

Oleg Tabelev came home with the Bronze Medal in the M45-49 Category of the World Masters 100K which was combine with this event.
