Conquering the Summit – Two Joint Support and Enabling Command Staff Members Go the Distance

Sonthofen, Germany - Two Joint Support and Enabling Command (JSEC) staff members, including Kapitán Katerina Dedakova from the Czech Republic, excelled by finishing the 70k Ultra distance of this year's "Allgäu Panorama Marathon".

Despite the most adverse weather conditions, causing a lot of muddy ground along the track , both of them managed to bravely conquer the enormous total distance of almost 70 kilometers, whilst climbing a breathtaking 3272 meters of altitude.

Asked about their personal highlight, both runners of JSEC's J4 branch replied unison, "completing the final, toughest summit and racing downhill towards the finish line, counting every last kilometer." Finishing the whole trail only was achievable "through a good mixture of physical and mental strength". Otherwise, it would not have been possible for Dedakova to finish second in her age classification in an outstanding 9:24:32 hours.

She will not have much time to recover, as the next ultra-race is coming up in 3 weeks - the "Beskydská Sedmička" race - 100km in the mountains of the Czech Republic, climbing 5.000 meters of altitude. Good luck, Katerina.
