Tor Des Geants. It's a 330 kilometer (206 mi) endurance run traversing the Italian Alps. Up and down and up and down ;)
24,000 meters (78,000 ft) of climbing.

So why, why this one? I don't know....I just know....ya know? There used something inside of me that just knows. I have no frame of reference to be able give a really logical reason, or provide a long resume of experience to prove (mainly to family and friends) that I am competent to undertake such a feat. Shit, they all thought I was nuts to do Leadville, what are they gonna think when they find out about this? Of course the trick will be getting in. It will fill fast. So wish me luck. If it is meant to be I will get in.
