Krkonose Mountains Day 2
Day 2 in the Krkonose was a run up Sniezka, 1602m, which is the highest peak in the Czech republic, gradual climbing, all runnable, then joined the ridge and looped back via Skop. The final climb to the summit is the half way point in the marathon karkonoski, its steep, but on a well paved trail, then a loop around and back down the gradually descending path pictured cutting across the face.. its then an undulating trail run back before repeating the ridge from day 1. There's nothing to scare the UK runner really, no huge ascents or descents, no altitude.. just a brutally runnable route which could well have temps of 25-30 C on the day.
