Inside Swiss Alpine K42, the Highest Marathon in Europe

As part of his preparation for a ridiculous 2014-2015 ultramarathon challenge, Nerve Rush athlete Joel Runyon heads to Switzerland to compete in the Swiss Alpine K42, the highest marathon in Europe.

At the start of the race, here’s what Joel has to say:

It’s 46 degrees and raining. There are mountains everywhere. A lot of climbing. A lot of climbing. A lot of climbing. A lot of rain. Some more climbing. It’s going to be a fun day. It’s going to be cold, and we’re going to do it.

This video shows us adrenaline junkies what it’s like to run a technical, high-alpine course.

Joel also had some time to give us a quick shout out. What’s up buddy!?!
