Hit The Top 2017

2017, June, 4, the 7th edition of "Hit the Top" race. My fourth participation.

There is not much more to add to my previous year post. The same short, steep, very intense race; well organised with very good runners taking part. The most notable difference was the weather - this year just perfect for a mountain running race. As a consequence my time was around 8 minutes better than last years's. I reached Omu Peak in around 1h30, and descended in  58 minutes. It sounds quite impressive until one realizes that the fastest runners in the race hit the top in 1h10 and then descend in just 30 minutes!

This video produced by the organizers captures very well the spirit and atmosphere of the race:
