Build up to the Salomon 4trails 8-11 July

Day 1 of the 2013 Salomon 4 Trails, Garmisch Partenkirchen to Ehrwald, Austria

As they say……

This is getting real…..

Four stages, countless summits and peaks and an amazing itinerary off the beaten paths on rocky tracks constitute one of the last true sporting challenge.
The Salomon 4 Trails is the baby brother of the GORE-TEX ® TRANSALPINE-RUN, half the challenge for mountain and trail runners, but it still has the reputation of a very high DNF rate, it is a highly professional and emotional event for all participants (This I know, I have unfinished business in these mountains).

The route leads us up and over 2600 meters high mountain passes and through beautiful valleys across the main Alpine ridge.
