CLASSIC UPHILL RACE LIVE
In another first, the mountain athletes will get the opportunity to compete in Classic Uphill and Classic Up and Down races in the same World Championship. The Uphill race, 8.5km with 1,065m of ascent, is the championship’s curtain-raiser, taking place on Friday, while the Up and Down, 10.7km with 475m of climb and descent, is the finale, taking place on Sunday.
WMTRC THAILAND 2022 UPHILL MOUNTAIN RUNNING: THE RACE
The race starts running over 1.5km with very little elevation on asphalt, after that is expected to break the pack just before entering the next 7km that run through forest tracks and trails in an almost jungle environment.
The conditions of heat and humidity, with temperatures of up to 30ºC and an average daily rain in November in Chiang Mai of 21mm will be demanding for everyone although perhaps less in this modality than in the other three because it is the shortest and most explosive.

As usual in WMRA races, no cash prize will be paid until the results of the mandatory WADA controls at the finish line certify the winners.
On the mandatory equipment, except for surprises there will be no more than that the shoes must comply with WA TR5 standards and will be inspected when entering the start boxes. Poles are not allowed, although given the speed of the elite in the race they would not be a real functional help.
