ALTITUDE GRAPHS

The supplied graphs are generated from the route files that we provide to all competing athletes for their GPS devices. These graphs demonstrate both changes in altitude and distance between checkpoints. The sections (between checkpoints) will be slightly longer than the graphs suggest as the recorded waypoints, which these graphs were based off, draw a straight line between themselves, resulting in a small variation in route length.

For the MONTANE® Spine® Challenger, the first 3 graphs (STA-CP1, CP1-MT & MT-CP2) are relevant to this race.

MONTANE® Spine® Race, all of the graphs are relevant. The MONTANE® Spine® Race is a considerable distance longer.
