Week c/25th July – Training

Just 9 days to Elbrus Expedition

Just over a week for our expedition to start…and I confidently say everything is ready to pack and logistics being organised. Worrying…

In this expedition, as I did in the past in the Himalayas, I am taking the flag of the International Mountain Day to the top of Europe.

The United Nations General Assembly designated 11 December “International Mountain Day”. As of 2003, it has been observed every year to create awareness about the importance of mountains to life, to highlight the opportunities and constraints in mountain development and to build alliances that will bring positive change to mountain peoples and environments around the world.

“Mountain Cultures: celebrating diversity and strengthening identity” is the theme chosen for this year’s celebration of International Mountain Day and we proudly are taking their flag to the Summit (and taking it back to be part of the activities we are organising in Spain (Benissa) later this year.

I would like to thank the following people that make this possible:

AYUNTAMIENTO DE BENISSA

RADIO LITORAL CADENA SER

MOUNTAIN PARTNERSHIP

COLEGIO OFICIAL DE INGENIEROS DE MONTES

MARINA ALTA – DIPUTACION DE ALICANTE

Formalities out of the way, training this week: Something less than 100Km this week because we are now adapting the pace to the last week hard work sessions, so I was able to cruise across the week without much trouble. But next week is going to be hell.
