Sebastian Conrad Håkonsson from the association Idrettsgleden went to the top of the Oslo Triple during today's Danske Bank Oslo Marathon. This is the first time the Oslo Trip was arranged during the marathon party in the streets of Oslo.
Håkonsson started the day with second place overall in the marathon distance with a strong 2:29:46. He continued with the half marathon in 1:24:46. Then he finished Saturday in the capital's streets with 10 kilometers and "10 for Grete" in 41:11.
It was a happy and tired triple winner who finished in the third and final stage over 10 kilometers.
-The triple is a crappy cult concept. The atmosphere in the tent, between the battles, was really cozy. It has been arranged all the way. Very good, said Sebastian Conrad Håkonsson.
But the marathon distance was the biggest experience for the triple winner.
-Marathon is the coolest. It means a lot to me. Those I ran with started to drop. Then I just gave gas, Sebastian Conrad Håkonsson said.
Half marathon was a tough experience, while the last distance went very well for Sebastian Conrad Håkonsson.
-After the marathon, there was a fight. The half marathon was a real anticlimax. Then I felt really empty. On "10 for Grete" I had a profit, but I was afraid of having cramps. There were trends all the way, said the winner of the Oslo Triple.
Aud Elisabeth Stuhr (39) from Stas-springarane from Sand in Rogaland became the best woman on the Oslo triple with 3:28:15 in the marathon, 1:52:31 in the half marathon and 52:08 in «10 for Grete».
-This was really fun. It exceeded all expectations. But I am most satisfied with the entire marathon distance, says Aud Elisabeth Stuhr.
-Half marathon I struggled the most with. It was a big challenge. The 10-kilometer went very well, says Stuhr.
Today's Danke Bank Oslo Marathon is the 36th time the event has been launched. The final number of participants is not yet clear, but 23,000 were registered before the Children's Marathon. Last year, around 2,000 children participated in the Children's Marathon. This means that the organizer estimates around 25,000 for this year's edition of the Danske Bank Oslo Marathon.
