Forty-six year old multi-day runner Kobi Oren, from Kiryat-Tivon, Israel reached his dream goal of 3100 miles today, finishing in second place in 46 days+03:24:48. This was the third fastest first-time performance in the 22-year history of the event. Kobe became the first Israeli to run 3100 miles, and is now ranked 12thworld-wide in the super-long footrace out of 42 finishers, men and women. The father of four gave a glowing tribute to all that helped him, and even cited the uniqueness of the distance and the difficult venue as steps leading to a fuller awareness of himself. He is a well-known competitor in international races, and has been quite successful. A throng of well-wishers and race supporters were moved by his eloquence as he spoke of feelings of gratitude to all that inspired him, including his fellow runners in the race this year. We wish Kobi well and long life, for he was determination in action.
