TransAlps Day 8 FINISH!

[Read about Day 1, Day 2 and the quick summary of Days 3, 4 & 5 and of Days 6 & 7. And check out Ryan’s photos from Days 1, 2, 3 & 4.]

Just a quickie to announce that Ryan & Ben finished Day 8 of the TransAlps race in a blazing 3 hours 32 minutes (9th men’s team and 16th overall today)! Thankfully and miraculously their bodies felt strong today and allowed them to make it to that final finish line in one piece. What an incredible 38 hour and 48 minute journey over a rugged 200 miles!

I am proud beyond words :-)

Details and photos to come soon! In the meantime I’ll leave you with this photo of today’s views posted on the TransAlps facebook page. Breathtaking!

Here’s Ryan’s GPS map of their 200 mile journey:

And their daily elevation profiles (green) and pace profiles (blue):

CONGRATULATIONS!
