Balcon des Fiz (15k, 750m D+)

Race Date: Saturday, 24/07/2021
Race Distance: 15 Km

The only one of the Trail du Tour des Fiz races that I could make work logistically, via a 10k walk in 29C, to pick up my bib and camp near the startline. After running at lunchtime. And a couple of beers while watching friends finish near midnight in the Duo race. So I was fairly dehydrated even before starting. Couple of loops above the ski station of Plaine-Joux, lumpy enough to be thoroughly unpleasant at various points, and very hot and humid. Beautiful scenery to appreciate though. Once it was over.
