Urruty repeats txapela and is his third win in the last five years. The promising Alonso has inaugurated his record in the race of the neighborhood of his aitonas.

    The works of the Mole through the city center have hindered the travel of the athletes with departure and arrival at Easo Square. Bottleneck for the most popular, the last ones have taken eight minutes to cross the exit arch. Difficult solution for the future, perhaps several exits with a offset of several minutes so that everyone can run faster. The race favorites did not have that problem. Strong departure from Imanol González, an athlete who has suffered a few days ago the loss of his brother Josu in a mountain accident in Palencia, emotional hugs that his rivals gave him at the end of the race. It was the first attack of that notable group of runners who fought for the win. Eneko Agirrezabal, always attentive, has responded firmly. Even for a good part of the test he has led the huge squad of this San Silvestre.

    Agirrezabal was head of proof as he passed through the Old. On the return, at the height of La Perla, in the middle of Paseo de la Concha, the Baiona Pierre Urruty corridor has reached his height and in a few seconds he has given an ax to him and the rest of the favorites to obtain a difference of about ten meters that have been decisive. “I was going full and when I saw that Pierre has advanced us with that ease, I have realized that the victory was difficult,” said Agirrezabal. For his part, Urruty has pointed out that the route and the footage “are phenomenal. There are always great rivals of Gipuzkoa but this time it has been strong in the final stretch ». And is not for less. Urruty has won three of the last five editions contested (2015, 2018 and 2019).

    The San Silvestre of the capital of Gipuzkoa brings together a good part of the elite elite fondistas. The winner’s time was 22 minutes 59 seconds. The podium has been completed by Aitor Etxeberria, another of the athletes with enormous potential at these distances. There has only been a difference of four seconds between them. Other regulars to the San Sebastian podium have also been top10 today. For example Ander Sagarzazu (fourth) Kaanache and Imanol Cruz (this afternoon somewhat more lagging, eighth and ninth) and has completed the dozen in the standings the excited Imanol Gonzalez, who wore a shirt with the image of his brother. The group of athletes fighting with him in the races have accompanied him in those final moments of the test by giving his condolences and hugging with emotion.

    In the women’s race, the protagonists have been two Guipuzcoans. The Donostiarra Sara Alonso and the Zarauztarra Olatz Flores have starred in a beautiful duel. At first the Zarautz midfielder has put a lot of attention to the rhythm. Something surprised Sara by that beginning but soon her potential as a more fundist has imposed the law. “I really wanted to win here,” said Alonso, who was accompanied by his family in the area of ​​Easo Square, where they live their aitonas and have worked all their lives. In goal, the difference has been very wide: 32 seconds, with final throne for the winner of 27:17. Mylene Marionneau has completed the podium.
