'2012 IAU 100k World Championships Results'

http://www.irunfar.com/2012/04/2012-iau-100k-world-championship-results.html

Not sure what happened in the men's race as Japan, a perennial medal contender, apparently had no men in the top 25.

Update: A reader in Finland sent a link to this discussion about the Seregno World Championships.  Apparently the Russian, Finnish and Japanese teams were housed over 50 km from the race site with the drive to the race taking four hours due to the drivers getting lost.  A Finnish team member commented: "It is a total let down that arrangements can be like this at a World Championship-level event.  I feel most sorry for the Japanese, who went to the World Championships in tragedy."
