Hanover. Renee Menzel was very satisfied. Hanover not only celebrated his debut in the national jersey at the European Championships for super runners over 50 kilometres. In the Spanish Sotillo de la Adrada he also took team bronze with the German national team behind Great Britain and Spain.

However, his race was a tough test for the former middle-distance athlete in what was only his second Ultra race. “After 30 kilometers, my muscles tightened. The last two laps on the 10-kilometre course, which must be cycled five times, were a combination of walking and running. I was glad to finally arrive,” Menzel said.
