Mountain Races

Some club members enjoy racing in the Alps or even further afield. Events attended may vary from year to year, but some events you might want to investigate further are:

France

Scotland

Spain

  • Subida Veleta, 50km: +2840m / -50m, the highest road in Europe, and Spain's second-highest mountain. All on-road, but it does go all the way to the top of the mountain at 3470m. http://www.subidaveleta.com

Italy

Switzerland

United States

  • Pikes Peak Marathon, Colorado Springs: +2382m / -2382m. It's very hard to break 5 hours total time although some have done it. Gruelling because of temperature extremes, protruding rocks, and the frequent loss of all toenails. http://www.pikespeakmarathon.org/index.htm
