Posted: November 27, 2007 in Uncategorized

European mountain running champion, Anna  Pichrtova, was on her way to 2006 Obudu International Mountain Race when the Jeep they were travelling in overturned in the Nigerian bush.

The Obudu race favorite,  was too injured to run. She flew back home where she underwent surgery.

She put behind her trauma and returned to the scene of her accident at this year’s Obudu Ranch International Mountain Race which took place in Nigeria Cross River State, on 24th November.

The race is 11.25km long with a killer 810m ascent. She finished a creditable sixth in a race won by Kenyas  Rita Jeptoo, Ethiopian Ashu Kasime came in second.
