2016 IAU Trail World Championships Live Coverage

Live coverage of the 2016 IAU Trail World Championships.

By on October 26, 2016 | Comments

IAU logoThe 2016 IAU Trail World Championships takes place this weekend in Peneda-Gerês National Park in northern Portugal. It’s an 85-kilometer (53-mile) point-to-point route with 4,680 meters (over 15,000 feet) of climb on a course created specifically for this event. That is, this course hasn’t been raced before.

Word from runners who have previewed the course is that it’s quite technical overall in addition to a great deal of elevation change, but that a faster first 30 kilometers will yield to more difficult terrain in the the last 50k. The race has both individual and team competitions with the latter based off the combined time of each country’s top-three designated members.

The race starts at 5 a.m. on Saturday, October 29th, which is 10 p.m. MDT on Friday, October 28th in the United States. As you’d expect, we’ll be reporting on the race live. We’re livecasting the event on iRunFar’s Twitter feed as well as combining news resources in a live-coverage feed below. Here are some resources to help you follow the race:
