Road To An Ultra Track
Oh this track making has been a monster. As in, I know my way and I know my routes but put it all together and make it into one digital document. Procrastination up until the last week! Now its done. It feels good and emotional. I look at the track, go through it mentally again and again. And I cry! Emotional. Excited. Nervous. Can’t wait. Make it between sunrise and sunset (7:23am-8:35pm). Be safe. Enjoy the run.

Depending on where I upload the .gpx and .kml file I get different numbers on elevation, km’s and way points. From experience and other Lanzarote trailrunners its approx +2500m/8202ft and not what Suunto is givning me: 3800m/12 468ft This is more than enough considering my comfortzone – as in what I’ve trained for is approx 1500m/5000ft.
What is for certain is that the initial climb is approx 600m/2000ft over 7k/4.3 miles
So, this is my route. And my hope is it all adds up to minimum 100k when I stop that watch. Wing it, Sarah!
