Rax Lauf 2011

On the summit plateau - not far now to the finish line.

Today as my clubmates ran up and down Ben Nevis in Scotland I ran in a local mountain race on the Rax here in Austria. Below is the course profile. It was a fairly hard slog in the warm conditions. In all there were 104 finishers. A man less than half my age set a new course record.

A trio of M60 veterans took part. I finished 2nd to a Mr Ulrich, 3 years younger than me, of Switzerland. I think Mr Pfleger the 3rd M60 to cross the finish line was a local man.

An enjoyable day in fine scenery.
