The LMT: La Malédiction Thierry

TG created this course during the summer of 2012. No one from Norway has finished it under 60 minutes. Can you do it under 60 minutes? We bet you can't and will have a reward for everyone who do!

Thierry say it is a "50-minutes course" (june 2013).  

Visit the dedicated The LMT-Page!

The year has started very well with 3 weeks in Portugal and I will try to be in good enough shape to run my course in under 60 mintues!
— Thierry Gueorgiou, World Champion (feb, '13)

A sample from the Thierry course.

The course is 7,4km with 245m climb.

It is a real treat!
