  • Second Round – 46 reached the last 16, racking up four games’ worth of mileage,
  • Quarter Final – 37 made it to the quarter finals, clocking over 54km,
  • Semi Final – 30 reached the semi-finals, with six games’ worth of running,
  • Final – Lastly, 21 of you managed to complete seven games’ – or more – worth of mileage (75.6km) and complete the World Cup Final!
