Race Report – Gore-Tex Transalpine – Day 3

Distance: 46.5k (Kitzbuhel to Neukirtchen)
Altitude gain (meters): 2158
Aid stations: 3
Food:  peanuts, cliff energy bar, 1 oranges
Water: 2.5 litre in pack with Nuun tablets
Time/ place: 6hrs 54min/ 19nd of 76 mixed male/ female teams

Day three could be basically summed up with cloud cloud Mist and cloud, again.  Lovely running weather but not so good for photos! Nor good for my pack weight lugging it around!  

The course had around 5-6k of running at ~2000 meters altitude and a very lovely down hill section at the end that Kelly and I were able to run hard through, we passed so many teams, hence the 19th place. Seriously, we really went for it and it’s amazing we were only 19th – there are some really really fast people out there!!!
