TRAIL RUNNING ON THE ZUGSPITZE
In the middle of April, I accompanied Ilka and Sebastian for a few days at a trail running adventure in the Alps. Our base was the small village Grainau, right on the German-Austrian border at the foot of the Zugspitze, Germany's highest mountain.
From there, the two ran four different trails, ranging from 8.8km (with 200vm) to 46.3km (with 2100vm). In addition to stunning views of the Zugspitze and surrounding mountains, the trails lead you through dense forests with moss-grown soils, along crystal-clear streams and lakes, and you hardly meet a human soul.
At the end, the runners banked 112km training kilometers (with 3800vm) on their running watches and took home many impressive pictures with an alpine panorama, which can`t be seen every day if you live in Hamburg.
