Rock Climbing meets Extreme Mountain Running – Climbathon?

supercup[1]Climbathon???  You must watch the video!  When I first looked at the Mount Kinabalu International Climbathon race description, I thought ahh it is only 21K, but then I saw the vertical, 2,300m (7,545ft) of gain over 10K, then you have to run back down.  Or FALL BACK DOWN.   Looks like this would be a great course to carry roller blades for the downs (check images below).  They say it is world’s toughest mountain race; it is twice as steep as Pike’s Peak.and 300m (1000ft) taller.  The course runs up and down Mount Kinabalu. AND the coolest part . . .
