The Grand Slam of the World
"Four of the world's toughest 100 mile trail races, over 120,000' of climb and 36,000 frequent flyer miles."
To be eligible, people must finish all four of these extreme ultras:
Ultra Trail Mt. Fuji - 161km, Japan, April
Hardrock - 100miles, Colorado, July
UTMB - 168km, Chamonix, August
La Misión - 160km, Patagonia, December
within one year, covering 400 miles with 120,000' of elevation climb (in six countries on four continents!).
People who finish are listed here as Grand Slammers of the World.
This is an informal series (i.e. no application, no award) which was thought up by
