- 10.09.2022 13:2765K // Aleksei TOLSTENKO takes the lead
- 10.09.2022 13:0165K // Just 50m between 1st and 2ndIt's not to be expected that a 65K race can keep you absolutely on toes with over 6h 30min into the race but Mathias DEUTSCHBAUER (AUT) and Aleksei TOLSTENKO (adidas TERREX) are almost clawing to each other. It's hard to tell who's in the better position right now. The guess is Aleksei probably has better control over the race situation, but who can be sure that Mathias is running at full pace?
- 10.09.2022 12:3445K // Ronja DERR (GER) is our fastest woman
- 10.09.2022 12:08TEAM RACE // completedThe top 3 Loop L runners have crossed the line to complete the adidas infinite TRAILS 2022 Team Race. In the male category the cummulative effort of WORST PACE SCENARIO (USA, SUI) placed them well ahead of PINZGAU & PONGAU (AUT) who were only 28 seconds faster that HANNES HAWAII TOURS (GER) after nearly 11 hours of running! The first prize for the fastest mixed team unsurprisingly ends up with SCHIAN, ABER ZACH who were up there in every loop. It'll still be some time before we know the outcome of the female race. Currently DAVxDynafitxLaufbarxAR Munich seem to have edged ahead of ADIDAS CHILE and ADIDAS RUNNERS WARSAW GIRLS.

It'll be interesting to see how the team ratings come together with PINZGAU & PONGAU currently 5th (male) and SCHIAN, ABER ZACH 4th (mixed) and ADIDAS RUNNERS WARSAW GIRLS (female) leading on Loop M.
- 10.09.2022 10:5665K // New leader Mathias DEUTSCHBAUERSomething must have gone wrong with Dmitry and we will keep you posted. Possibly he took a wrong turn. New leader in the 65K run is Mathias DEUTSCHBAUER (AUT) reaching Graukogel Mittelstation after 4:42:58 31.9 km into the race. He has a 7 minute lead over Aleksei TOLSTENKO (adidas TERREX) and additional three minutes to Swiss runner Alexander HIRSBRUNNER.
