This week, Chiang Mai, Thailand, hosts the first-ever combined Trail World Championships and World Mountain Running Championships, now called the World Mountain and Trail Running Championships, from November 4 to 6, 2022.
We’re covering the 80k (actually 78k/48.5-mile) race starting at 6:30 a.m. local time on Saturday, November 5, which is 5:30 p.m. on Friday, November 4, in U.S. Mountain Time.
During the race, runners will have to cover a massive 4,807 meters (15,771 feet) of climbing and an equal amount of descent starting in the outskirts of Chiang Mai before spending most of the race in Doi Suthep-Pui National Park.
