ELBRUS 8

"Just 8 km? It's like a park-run" – you might think. Yep. But instead of the usual paths there will be "cow" trails, instead of the plain and gullies there will be a 500 m ascent, and instead of park landscapes — the top of the Elbrus summits and the ringing mountain air. Elbrus 8 is the shortest distance, but that doesn't make it less "mountainous" and less exciting. A great choice to discover the Adidas x Alpindustria Elbrus Race!

Feedback

The beauty and diversity of the track definitely exceeded my expectations:

pine forests with raspberry thickets, bridges and fords across mountain rivers, beautiful lake Syltran, rocky slopes and fluffy grass, scorching sun and icy wind and, of course, incredible mountain scenery! On the organization of the start I heard a disgruntled opinions from the participants... I do not share these views and believe that everything depends on your expectations — it's the mountains, and you need to count only on yourself, the race and beautiful that here you feel alone with the mountain nature, enjoying its incredible beauty!

I knew it wouldn't be easy, but I never imagined it would be so hard.

I have never had such a long race in my life. 46 km of incredible landscapes of the most beautiful Caucasus mountains, crazy climb, steep long climbs, descents, which did not allow to relax, and all this lasted for 8 hours. To me, Yes again, Yes with pleasure! Steeper mountains can be only mountains!

Arthur Kuuzik

Registered for the EWR race solely out of curiosity,

impressed by the dizzying views of the mountains and beyond for me the level of complexity. Feelings I can't describe with words. Like the Olympus to the gods rose))) it Was five times harder than I imagined. And it was a pleasant surprise how far I am from a real assessment of their capabilities, both physical and psychological. And only getting into such desperate conditions, you discover yourself from a completely new side.

Elizaveta Devochkina

Finish, i have survived in this HELL!

The clock says 5:58, check equipment, exhausted, feet hoot, food-water, not climbing, going to the river to soak, a little massage from RockTape, somehow eat chicin. Champagne at the awarding ceremony results in feelings, but in my mind still misunderstanding: after all, (censored) why?)))) But after a couple of days the desire to repeat everything again!

Anton Suzdalev

Although it is hard for me, I am glad that the race is already underway.

Nothing can change, backpack is ready, of getting to wait on the points. No more formalities. Now it is only important to do the right thing, not to do too much ahead of time, to eat, to drink. And run as fast as you can. Now you are completely in the game, the sensations are sharpened, and you absorb the world around you with all its surface. I have long been trying to find the words to the state of unity with the world that comes in the race — and I can not. I guess you just have to feel it.
