“Although I had an issue with my shoes 30km in, I am still grateful for finishing this year’s race. I am also thankful to my sponsors Jeff Richmond, Charles Hallé and Nora Simpson for always supporting my journey, as well as my family for their constant support,” said a smiling Cyril.

Running 88km from one city to another is all in a day’s work for this amazing athlete!
