World’s steepest running race

Runners from around the world came to Harrachov, Czech Republic to put their calves, quads, and endurance to the test in one of 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.
