Description

The Sky-Izta 21k starts at Paso de Cortés and heads toward the Iztaccíhuatl (the sleeping woman). The race combines rural road with singletrack. It is a out-and-back race and requires medium-advanced experience in mountain races as the ascent and descent are long, steep, and challenging. The race tops out at around a breathtaking 15,890 ft/4850 m of elevation.
