Mammut Mountain Marathon Bivio 1999

 

In August 1999 my brother Tom and I ran the Mammut Mountain Marathon in Bivio, Switzerland. This event is a two-day orieneering marathon in the southern alps. We had to take all food for two days and the equipment to cook and sleep one night in 2600m altitude.
