THE RACES

BECOME A TRAILBLAZER

Its hard to quantify, but it exists. This is the land of the Green Fairy, of dreams, of myth and legend, of spruce-topped mountains, of waterfalls and gorges, of luscious green forests and charming streams. Its like running through a scene from the Lord of Rings. Remote, rugged, with mystery always present. The 2018 race through its K105 course offers a wider range of natural wonder from cascades to cliffs to canyons and ever more challenging terrain.
