Hi Geem, I've been to Tenerife on holiday & to Tiede twice now . The views I had last May were beautiful and clear like your pics . The trail through the forest was just calling to me to run on it so that's why this race appeals to me . Heat I can cope with , I was interested to know about the altitude so thank you for the info on that .
Thank you T-Rex for your account and really steel hard determination to go as far as you did - stubborn lot aren't we?!!
I think yes you are right in that some people don't cope as easily in hot weather . I prefer it hot but I struggle in cold so I will be paying particular attention to how I can stay warm as soon as evening / light falls rather than waiting to think about it in the middle of the night !
