Women in arms


CJ and Hilda asked if in the 3 Comuni battle (22.6 km./14 m) there were women. The answer is: 1261 men and 156 women. These are the statistic data about the women:
The winner from Morocco in 1.25.31; 9 women between 1.31.00 and 1.40.00; 23 between 1.40.00 and 1.50.00; 22 between 1.50.00 and 1.55.00; 17 between 1.55.00 and 2.00.00; 17 between 2.00.00 and 2.05.00 and the others between 2.05.00 and 2.43.00.
Usually in this region partecipate more women but this is a special race with many uncomfortable situations and they prefer to enter the shorter distance of 7 km. (4.3 m) where the runners are less (about 200) and the prizes are better.
I have the honour to announce that Lady CJ joined the Black Knight Army, now we have another brave Amazon.

  1. hm.... will you be as comfortable slaying the women as the men? i want to know if you're an equal opportunity black knight or are you a softy?

    now, you're not saying women can't do hills are you? very dangerous.

  3. Monte and Milford have decided they would like to grant their services to the Black Knight Army as it looks like he is in need of more Scouts! They would be honored to serve besides the likes of Rowdy!
