Jonas Hoffman won the half marathon in the traditional event

Jonas Hoffman continues to prove that he is a strong runner in triathlon competitions. Last weekend, the 27-year-old took part in a half-marathon in Kandel (Rhineland-Palatinate) as part of the well-known Beinewald Marathon – a 30-hour training week with an 84-kilometer run. His coach's instructions were to finish the 21.1 kilometers just above the threshold. The result was 1:05:48 hours and first place overall. Hoffman finished second, ahead of professional runner Simon Stutzel, by a good two minutes.

Caleb Noble won at Mooloolaba

The closest finish was the Mooloolaba Triathlon, which has a permanent place on the Australian racing calendar. Australian Caleb Noble won the Olympic distance in the finish sprint and subsequent dive. Officially he crossed the finish line after 1:45:53 hours in the same time as second placed Charlie Quinn (AUS). In the post-finish section, Noble was definitely ahead, sliding a few meters on his stomach on the still-wet carpet – impressively visible in the Instagram post linked below. Third place went to Curt Macdonald of Australia after 1:47:26 hours.

Australia's Rachel Hill also won the women's category. She finished in 1:56:51 hours. Dutch Lode Wilms finished second after 2:00:59 hours. Emily Donker (AUS) completed the podium in 2:06:35.
