Although the Covid-19 crisis has wreaked havoc with the world of trail running in 2020, the Thailand by UTMB event last weekend proved to be a rare success story.

More than 1500 runners headed to the highest peak in Thailand, Doi Inthanon, for the longest event, the Inthanon6. Covering 170km (106 miles) and with more than 7600m of ascent, runners braved tricky underfoot conditions such as mud and torrents.

Sanya Kanchai emerged the overall winner, clocking 26 hours 40 minutes six seconds. Phitchanan Mahachot was first woman, crossing the finish in 36:16:38.
