It's hard to escape the trail running fever in the Alps; it's everywhere, and growing rapidly. What began as a hike in the woods has evolved into endurance trail running, with courses exceeding 170km and 10,000m of positive altitude change. Every year, the gear gets lighter, tighter and supposedly faster, and then it's hard not to want to join in and pick up the pace.
This morning we got a taste of the "short" Pitschen course of the Engadin Ultraks race, which runs next week:
Distance: 16,3 km
D+/D-: 1.300 m
Highest point: Chamanna Segantini – 2.730 m
Maybe next time we will wear a bib and see how fast we go!
