Leo Peterson conquers the Mountain at the World Mountain Running Championships Andorra

OCTOBER 16, 2018

 

Hosted in the local town of Canillo, sporting an altitude of 1500 meters and a backdrop of the Pyrenees. It was clear this location would be one of the toughest races to date.

In its 34th year of the event, we see over 20 countries from across the world come together for the opening ceremony. Presented adjacent a freshwater stream, its splashing heard only in the slight pauses in music. For the wild traditional dancing featuring bells, clapping and baton wielding held us all captivated. 

The serious part came all too soon, was delivered in both English and Catalan the local language the race, with a climb of over 1000 metres, covering 12 kilometres and finishing at an altitude of 2500 metres. It was at this point it became real to me that this was a battle, not just between countries, rivals or teammates, but a battle between my own mind and body.  My lead up had been undesirable, with injury and illness most of my training was on the bike.

In a final session, an ankle strain flared up and I boarded the plane with a limp, very different from taking the flight to Hobart Tasmania where I placed 3rd at the National trial. Luckily, my girlfriend was my biggest supporter and with her by my side, we took off to Andorra.

Race day saw the juniors start out of town on a 7 km course. Will and Eligh in high spirits.  The women started at 10 with Simone leading the Aussie charge. 11 o’clock the men’s race started. With a course profile, resembling a good year in the stock exchange there was no provision for recovery. 400 metres of ascent to the 5km mark, the ski lift had done its job delivering close to 300 spectators to this point on the mountain. They lined the grass track, which had a generous splattering of Marmot holes at this time of year. Avoiding damaging my ankle again, we took a turn for a brief downhill into the forest. Hair pin turns, tree roots and steep shale climbs followed for the next 5km.

Bursting into the open again, we were confronted with a black diamond ski run. Our final ascent of 300 metres in 2km. By this stage, I had dried my sunnies, with a temperature of 30 degrees and altitude over 2100 metres. My hands are tingling. This is the point I start to ask myself that question, one I always seem to ask myself in a race. “Am I going to finish this?” It is the 7-9km point in a 10km, the 3-4km in a 5km, and 800-1200 in a mile.  A drink station and safety car in front of me, beside me and soon behind me as I continue my journey on and up. It is funny I do not remember much of finishing, the crowds lining a dusty path funnelling athletes towards an inflated finish gate.

I will never forget amongst all the chaos at the end, the green and gold. Assisted to the shade of a tent by my girlfriend Megan, the other Aussies came over. We stood together at the top of the mountain in celebration, not just of our individual performances but also of each other as a whole. The coaches, parents, partners and siblings who made it possible to compete on the world stage joined us, capturing the moment in few photos.

A farewell feast at the hotel and the closing ceremony meant the end of an amazing experience. Biggest Thankyou to Australian mountain running, UTS North’s, John Harding, Tim Crosbie and Megan.

To the Aussies who shared this wild ride with me, I am looking forward to joining you in torturing our souls all over again next year in Argentina.
