Video: Extreme Mountain Running in Italy

The Red Bull K3 is an incredibly tough mountain running race that was held in Italy recently. It challenges participants to cover a mere 3000 meters in as fast a time as possible. But those 3000 meters happen to run up the side of a mountain, at an almost vertical angle. The video below will give you an example of what that event is like, and it will probably make your legs hurt just watching it. This makes my daily runs, on hilly terrain no less, look like a walk in the park. English subtitles are available from the closed captioning option of YouTube. Enjoy!
