A little collection from my first Brocken-Challenge 80K participation. It's a charity ultra-marathon that leads from Göttingen to the top of Northern Germany's highest mountain, the Brocken.
It's a lovely course that passes open fields and villages before entering the Harz national forrest and finally leading up the mountain peak with alpine climate conditions.
While the last two years participants were struggeling with huge amounts of fresh snow along the way, this year's weather conditions were rather moderate. Whereas moderate says, you still better get some extra spikes or tracks beneath your feet.
It's a tremendous race, huge compliments towards all volunteers who cared so much for the runners, before, during and after the race.
If somebody's looking for a real challenge: here you have it!
