This technical course was drawn as a part of my preparation trying to reach the finishline in UTMB 2017.
I wanted to train in my near surroundings with approximately the same ascent and descent/km as in the UTMB.
It is quite a challenge when ”Hisingsparken” I live nearby in Gothenburg has a highest point that is lower then 100m over sealevel. 😀
But I suceeded! The result is a very demanding 10 km loop and the Alpaca race uses this loop.
Two training competitions has been held on the course. First in August 13th, 2017, just before UTMB and second in December 26th, 2017, the last one in very muddy conditions. Both times the winners were running 5 laps.
