Charming Trail 七星登山王越野挑戰賽 43km

posted in: race | 0

Many Taiwan Beast Runners participated in Charming Trail 43km, probably shortest ultramarathon. 🙂 But It was long enough with lot vertical meters (gps showed 1700m) on stoned stairway in Yamingshan. NIght raining and high humidity prepared very slippery stones and partly muddy trail for runners who reached main peak of Yamingshan mountains 七股山 on 25th kilometer.

These trail are nice, runnable (except stairways) in very nice area of Yamingshan. The most difficult from race were three final kilometers uphill on the road to the finish, hope can change in future. Race start at 6:00, and all distances categories start together. It was little messy and youd could not know who is before you in category. In Yamingshan are lot turns and we lost once.

Local strong runners 周平記 and 江晏慶 fighted for peak bonus (七股山), but 江晏慶 showed his power and reach top few minutes before us. My favourite part was down from Yamingshan through forest with muddy trail.Charming champion

No bad results, Petr got 2nd overall with time 4:59:59, over 3 minutes behind champion 江晏慶. Amber Lane won 3rd in female and main prize was bruised knees for her. Erica unfortunately went wrong way, but still managed finish her longest race and 2nd in age group. Eva got easy and come after seven hours something, her face showed she hates final road as well. Sasha 5th overall. Yujui in first ten and prepared for another marathon that evening, crazy. James finish, but we hope his marriage didnt, he lost his wedding Ring during his falls. Everybody finished, happy. Ready for Sunday Beast party… Thank you for your coming.IMG_2079

由蔡耀全主任精心策劃,期待以久的第一屆七星登山王越野挑戰賽於4/25開賽,賽前我的腳仍舊未癒無法參加,本想直接在會場等大家回來,快出發前 20min才到會場,Eva拿物資給我的時後,不知道被下了什麼蠱,號碼布自己跑到我身上,腳上的Y拖也莫名其妙地變成了越野鞋,大家出發了之後,我才拖 著牛步在後面默默地跟著走,還不小心在門口被David跟蔡主任看到,小聊一下順便拍照,接著遇到Emmie在出口幫我加油,跑沒幾步路又遇到匡寓他們在拍照,匡寓趕我走叫我跑快點,但我死皮賴臉地跟著一起拍,哈哈( 雖然我還沒看到照片在哪裡)

進山徑前,遇到很多好朋友,,突然覺得柏油路變得不那麼無趣了,一進入塞車的山徑,開始要超車,被Allen叫我的聲音嚇到,腳滑了一下,有點糗…接 著繼續超車…途中遇到可愛的4分,又遇到國欣坐在路邊幫大家拍照,停下來跟國欣小聊一下關心晶晶的狀況,本想跟著4分跑,結果一直追不到她…我被 4分海放了!無奈,只好繼續看看有沒有遇到認識的朋友,沒多久遇到超久不見的郁璇,超開心的,跟著她和第一次見面的Issac,還有必誠一起邊跑邊玩,尤 其是郁璇沿途停下來幫忙舒緩抽筋的跑者朋友們,真的令人佩服,而我只能出張嘴請對方輕鬆跑,速度放慢…

喔,對了,我的嘴還有一個最重要的功能,就是「吃」,當天本來只是去會場等大家回來而已,所以水袋背包裡面只有水跟蚊蟲藥…完全沒有準備補給,出門前才吃了一大碗公飯,但是我很快就餓了,沿路看到補給站超開心的,一直在吃吃吃,蔡主任不好意思,我吃很多,哈哈哈!
才剛離開補給站1,沒多久遇到摩根,第一句話就是問補給站還有多遠?聽到還有2K…放心多了,加快腳步趕緊跑到白石湖因為那裡除了有補給站還有汽水可以買!

出了山徑,在白石湖補給站2又遇到好多朋友,尤其好久不見的蘭君,還有傅祺育大哥,一夥人在那又拍了一堆照片;接著去找老闆娘買汽水,老闆跟老闆娘才剛到沒多久還在下貨,跟老闆娘抱怨沒香腸可以吃,請她以後注意賽事日期,下次要早點來準備!
郁璇覺得我吃太久先跑走,Issac還有等我一下,但是我真的很餓永遠都吃不飽,尤其參加那麼多場越野賽,難得這場可以停下來盡情的吃,而且志工們那麼辛苦,一大早就在準備,實在盛情難卻(明明自己很愛吃,哈哈哈!

離開白石湖往大崙頭山乘風堡,一路上讓我想起去年ezFun碧山那場跑錯路還摔慘的慘痛經驗,但幸運地被欽松撿到還陪跑了10K,教了我不少跑山技巧,陣陣點滴上心頭….除了感恩還是感恩!

我跟Issac追了好久才在五指山山徑路上追到郁璇,之後的雙溪溝古道也是我喜歡的路,曾經跟孟德私鳩團的好朋友們一起跑過,我還跟郁璇說,等等我們要跟 浩志樹拍照,但山徑太窄怕影響到其他跑友們就作罷了,出了雙溪溝古道前往風櫃嘴,跑在萬溪產業道路我越來越冷了,還好我有帶外套馬上穿起來,到了風櫃嘴補 給站真的是又餓又冷,看到志工們熱情地招呼大家,我又盛情難卻的吃了零食,橘子和可樂…

每次跑山最怕三件事:餓、冷、腳痛,當下我跟郁璇和Issac揮揮手請他們先走,我要拋棄他們了,因為我知道一旦進入陽明山,除非坐小巴,不然很難下山, 雖然我可以先跑到擎天崗坐小巴或是從半路轉進北五指山草原從荷蘭古道下山,但是第一我怕餓,第二風櫃嘴已經很冷了,擎天崗應該更冷,第三腳傷未癒不能太 操,今天玩到這裡就好,已滿足!最後在風櫃嘴補給站包紮一下前一天探路起的水泡,然後請工作人員開車載我下山回會場等大家回來,謝謝他們!

感想:
1.路線標示非常清楚,即使沒有人員引導也不會跑錯路(雖然我只跑到風櫃嘴16K)
2.工作人員很熱情,一直餵食我,有需求都會立刻處理協助
3.終點會場有吃到飽的熱食很棒,這我最開心了,吃得很滿足!
4.姚哥贊助的Fuller’s生啤好喝!
5.謝謝一路上認出我幫我加油的朋友們,族繁不及備載,如果有一起跑過通常我會記得,因為我記憶力不是很好,如果忘記妳/你的名字請不要介意!
6.謝謝Saba Sung在風櫃嘴補給站非常熱心地招呼我,雖然當時我們第一次見面而且我沒認出妳是誰,哈哈哈!
