Elbrus Mountain Marathon is a 46 km long run with the elevation gain of 3150 meters and participation in which brings 1 ITRA and 1 UTMB® 2016 qualifying point. It’s one of the three distances of Elbrus World Race by adidas Outdoor 2015. Last time we shared the experiences of those who ran the 34 km Elbrus Trail 34 and this time we are going to cover the longer and more challenging marathon distance.
Elbrus World Race by adidas Outdoor came to its finish just two weeks ago and we have interviewed the participants and prepared a series of material covering each of the Race distances – Elbrus Trail, Elbrus Mountain Marathon and Elbrus Mountain Race. Today we cover the shortest distance – the 34 km long Elbrus Trail that gains 2100 m of elevation, crossing the mountain lake Syltran and the mountain pass of the same name, and descending via Kyrtyk Gorge to the start and finish point – Verkhniy Baksan.
Now you can find photos of the Elbrus World Race by adidas Outdoor 2015 (Elbrus Mountain Race, Elbrus Mountain Marathon, Elbrus Trail and the Award Ceremony) on our website!
Elbrus World Race 2015 by adidas Outdoor has just finished and we are ready to share the Race experiences of the participants, organisers and locals. As a reminder, there were three distinct distances: Elbrus Mountain Race, Elbrus Mountain Marathon and Elbrus Trail.
