Below are the results from the long distance event at the World University Championships in Spain yesterday.  The race today consisted of very hilly, rocky terrain in which the winner of the course was the one who took the best route choice. Track options around large hills seemed to be the best choices at times however knowing your way through gigantic ravines also seemed to help ( note control 14 to 15) . Our girls today struggled mainly in the ravine just outside of 14 as the crossing point was hard to find and if you missed it you were stuck in blackberries with 10m high cliffs surrounding you. Aislinn was the best of our runners today maintaining a solid pace throughout the course.
