The German Marathon Champions
NATIONAL CHAMPIONS AND EUROPEAN QUALIFICATION
Our German SAYSKY athletes were challenging for the national title on the marathon distance this past weekend in Düsseldorf. Despite horrendous conditions with rain and wind, the guys pulled off yet another win to re-claim their championship medals.
Sebastian Reinwand came in second and secured a spot at the European Championships later this year. Philipp Baar had a fine debut on the marathon distance with a fourth place finish and a potential qualification spot as well.
Overall, the SAYSKY athletes from Art Düsseldorf did very well and they can be incredibly proud of a fine season so far. Not that long ago, they also won the national championships on the half marathon distance, which you can read about here.Finish Times and Placement at the Nationals:
