Now how's this for a view in a half-marathon race...

Aletsch Half-marathon view

What a view!!! (Image borrowed from the backdrop on the Aletsch half-marathon website.)

This is what runners get to see when running the Aletsch Half-marathon. It's a nice flat race with only around 1050m of elevation change ;-) .

I've added this one to my bucket list. Sadly, I can't do it this year as I've already chosen to run past a chalk giant with a huge penis in the Dorset hills that weekend, but maybe next year.

Thanks to my colleague, Doug, for pointing this race out to me.
