They're through stage 4!!

Chrissy and Martin tackled a 14-mile stage today in 3:51, good for 34th in their division and sit 37th in the open mixed division for the race so far. While it was a relatively short and net downhill stage, the photos show there was some stream crossings and at 11,000 feet, nothing seems easy.

Another amazing run, but it gets tough tomorrow. According to the web site, "the 5th day odf the 2009 GORE-TEX TransRockies Run is another long day out on the trails. Covering 23.5 miles with nearly 4500 feet of climbing, the runners face possibly their longest day or running of the race. They cross two passes above 11,500 feet and traverse the spectacular China Wall on the backside of Vail Mountain before desending steeply to finish in the village. In 2007, runners were snowed on during this stage but the forecast is far more benign in 2009."
