Cappadocia Ultratrail in a few days

Heading to Turkey in a few days to run the Cappadocia Ultra Trail on Saturday. A 110-km trail race with 3300 metres of elevation gain. This race is a bit different from my last ultras. It is the longest distance I've ever run, but there is not a massive climb and the elevation gain is significantly less compared to the previous ultras. After the Eiger and the Irontrail, I had a few weeks of almost no training. I started to train for this race in mid August. Had a few long runs and also did a bit of strength training at the gym. I am now tapering and getting ready for the challenge. I might not be in my best shape, but my mind is set. Whatever happens, I'm going to give it my best this Saturday.

Training near Tochal summit, my favourite place.
