LTNT SOLA TEAM 2016

Competing in the Sola Stafette, where a team of 14 runs a total of 116km is a longstanding tradition of LTNT. After having set an all-time record the previous year, we aimed to repeat the feat. On a hot day everyone had to dig deep but the months of training paid off. Although we could not quite reach the rank and time of the previous year, we finished a solid 105th out of 999 teams with a time of 9:14:39 which puts us in second place of the all-time LTNT scoreboard.
