I wrote about the The RedBull UPHILL 400 meters 3 years ago, and a lot of people thought it was just a fad… just like the Spartan or Tough Mudder runs.
The 2012 RedBull 400 meters edition was held on a ski-jump in Tauplitz near Bad Mitterndorf in Austria.
The 2014 version was held in Harrachov, Czech Republic. It is the steepest races across all of Europe. From bottom to top, it’s 400 meters in distance and close to 200 meters in altitude: a pure uphill sprint to the top of an olympic ski jump slope.
These races are tough to find in the USA or Canada.. only Lake Placid, Salt Lake City or Calgary comes to mind!
