Race Report: La Transtica Ultra Trail 2012

This race report was sent in by Bernard Marchal, organiser of the La Transtica Ultra Trail:

A magnificent first stage, along the Pacific Coast, in the middle of a green palm grove driving us step by step into the tropical jungle, approximately 15 km flat with crossings of bridge and rivers followed by a progressive ascent which will bring our runners in the hearth of the jungle.

The main difficulty of the stage was the heat and the humidity which reigns over this part of Costa Rica.

As a starter, we cannot make better for the adventure which starts by an intense stage of 20 km with a positive difference in level of 1 300m.

The first stage of the CRUT was very challenging with lots of climbing, including a 10 km straight climb between km 18 and 28.

“The route was very well marked and support tables were very comprehensive. The weather was extremely hot and this made the already challenging route that much tougher”
Wayne Rice (Extreme)
