2014ldmrchlogo.gifThe 11th annual WMRA World Long Distance Mountain Running Challenge will be hosted by the Pikes Peak Ascent this Saturday, August 16, in Manitou Springs, Colorado.
This is the third time Pikes Peak has hosted the Challenge.

The first was in 2006, when the Pikes Peak Marathon served as the host race and more recently, in 2010, the Pikes Peak Ascent was the host event.
This year, entries were received from nearly 20 countries for the competition, with seven full teams in the women’s division and nine for the men. The first team competition at the Challenge took place in 2009. Although five athletes may run for a country, the combined times of the top three members on the team are tabulated for scoring. There are awards for the top three men’s teams and the top three women’s team as well as individual medals for the top three men and top three women overall.

3rd stage WMRA World Cup: Slovenia and Kenya took the prime positions on the extreme course. - 28 July 2014
2014grintovecwinners.jpg223 runners from 10 countries gathered on the start line of the 16th Grintovec race in a beautiful valley of Kamniska Bistrica 25km north from Ljubljana.
The weather was unpredictable – the day before the race a thunderstorm made the 10km long course with almost 2000m elevation gain wet and slippery and rain was also expected in the time when the runners were competing on the steep slopes of 2552 m high Grintovec; in this case, the race would be stopped after 6,5km for safety reasons. Luckily, the weather was not so bad; some of the runners even enjoyed the chilly temperatures.
