Uphill run with Mountain Buggy urban jungle

Two years ago, I participated in my first uphill run here in Norway, and this year, I upped the stakes by signing up with my daughter in our Mountain Buggy urban jungle

Uphill running has really taken off in the past 2-3 years and I was inspired to start when I spotted a woman running the whole trail with a Mountain Buggy duo !

The run I completed is in Bergen, Norway, and is called the Fløyen Opp. This trail is a 3.2km run with approximately a 10% incline the entire way! It starts at sea level and ends at 320 metres above sea level, but does come with this awesome view!

There are no steps in the course, so I thought it would be a perfect opportunity to run with my daughter in our urban jungle . I was also joined by my sister in law, her husband and their two daughters.

We made it in 34m 57s, a whole 2m 45s faster than the last time we attempted the trail at full speed. The fastest time was an incredible 13m 44s! My average heart rate was 185 bpm, with a maximum of 208! The urban jungle works great in this terrain; you just need to lock the front wheel and go!
