We will literally run 21.1km from the bottom of the pass to the summit, turn around and run 21.1km back down. The Start/Finish is at 1566m (5137ft) with the summit at 2873m (9425ft). That is quite a climb!

Everyone I’ve spoken to has warned me about the last 2km of the climb and I finally got this photo that shows it.
The final part of the pass to the summit.
That might well be a challenge, but I’m more worried about making a u-turn at the top and running down that again…ouch!
So I’ll be MIA for a few days to go visit and run in this beautiful place. Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
