RE:GlobalLimits Cambodia - The Ancient Khmer Path
Whilst the top 3 men and women remained the same, Ita Marzotto was first overall as well as first female in today's long stage - great to see. Today's 62.4km took competitors from Preah Khan temple to Beng Mealea temple, which was used in the filming of Indiana Jones. The first 30km were hot jungle, and the remaining 32km were flat trail under a burning sun - a tough day! These were the first 3 men and women to finish:

MEN - Stage 3
1. Stan Lee (2nd overall) - 8:13:21
2. Mike Mueller (joint 3rd overall) - 9:07:30
3. Carlos Guerreiro (5th overall) - 9:26:28

WOMEN - Stage 3
1. Ita Marzotto (1st overall) - 8:03:03
2. Kristine Self (joint 3rd overall) - 9:07:30
3. Teresa Lam (4th overall) - 9:14:06

The runners are staying overnight in local village houses before tomorrow's 29km which will take them to Kulen Waterfalls.

Stage 4 took runners from the Prasat Beng Mealea Temple to the Kulen Waterfall (29km). Stan Lee was first across the line, and Michael Mueller was again second male. In a twist from the previous stages, Ramon Abdala from Argentina finished as third male. The top 3 women remained the same as all the previous stages, with Ita Marzotto once again first female. We are awaiting the full results and times from today's stage. Tomorrow's Stage 5 is 44.1km.
