Red Bull 400 Uphill Race in Park City

On Sept. 26 at the Utah Olympic Park in Park City, Utah, more than 400 hardy athletes and weekend warriors took on the ridiculously difficult challenge of running 400 meters up an Olympic ski jump. Sound hard? Damn straight the Red Bull 400 was hard! The races, co-sponsored by Under Armour, started at the lofty elevation of 6,870 feet above sea level, which only added to the lung and leg burn as competitors ran, crawled and struggled up the 134-meter ski jump landing hill and in-run ramp. As you scroll through the images below, you can almost sense the anguish these competitors put themselves through to reach the top. Turkey’s Ahmet Arslan was fastest of the day, winning the elite heat in 4:05.8 just two seconds ahead of former U.S. Mountain Running Team member John Tribbia of Salt Lake City. U.S. Olympic cross country skier Liz Stephens (4:39.2) was the fastest woman to the top, holding off a hard-charging Austrian cross country skier Veronika Mayerhofer. Proceeds for the event benefitted the local ski jumping and cross country ski programs of the Park City Nordic Ski Club. (View full results online.)
