The Vitorian triathlete Eneko Llanos, participated this past weekend in the Marrakech half marathon (Morocco), where he has achieved a mark of 1:11 finishing in the 60th position of the test.
Eneko, as he commented on his social networks, is not used to running on asphalt without having to swim and pedal before, but he has not been bad.
"The truth is that running 21kms on asphalt (if they are not preceded by swimming and cycling) is not something that especially excites me. PD: 1h11 ′, not too bad for the time of the season.
It was his first test of the season to try to get the slot for Kona 2020

Enjoying my birthday present. When @ruthbrito gave me a bib for the @marathon_de_marrakech Half Marathon, I couldn't help but look astonished. The truth is that running 21kms on asphalt (if they are not preceded by swimming and cycling) is not something that especially excites me. But we come home happy, not only for the test itself, but for the moments and experiences lived in just three days with the family, in such a different and special environment and culture that I wanted to know long ago. . PS: 1h11 ', not too bad for the time of the season. . @hokafans_iberia @hokaoneone_eu #xcarbon @ 226ers @spiuk_official
