The best in women’s competition was local Klarika Kuusk representing Diadora Treeningpartner (3:11.12).
„The race was enjoyable but hard regarding harsh headwind. I really liked the forest part. Estonian forest is really beautiful. So far I have had slight problems recovering from previous marathon ran in Tokyo“, said mr. Rosenbrier.
Ranking ninth overall, Klarika Kuusk was happy to beat her previous best in Pärnu. „I took a solo run and fought hard with the windy conditions. I am still happy to beat my last best on V-Day’s track, which was only few seconds slower. Regarding partially cross-country terrain and wind I might assume I’m in quite great shape“, stated Kuusk.
