Skyrunning Vertical KM – Chamonix, France

The Skyrunning Vertical KM race in Chamonix, France is a fun, lung busting event that I'd been lookin forward to for a long time.Check out this image of the route climbing 35% grade in 3.4km.

What an amazing atmosphere and race this Mt. Blanc Vertical Km ascent Skyrunning Race is!   We were given a staggered start, and I went off just before 6pm with an expected time of 52-56 minutes. Since I'd run 100 miles only 13 days prior (!), I didn't go off expecting any great performance, but knew I had some good legs to climb at a decent rate. I took a few photos here and there, and in the end I finished in 55:41 in 186th position out of about 350. Not bad at all!
