Thumbs up, for sure!
Mt. Gaoligong Ultra is scheduled to be moved from November to March, with the next running in 2018. Apparently at that time of year the weather is more reliably good, and flowers will be blooming in early Spring. For any ultra-runner, and with immense enthusiasm, I highly recommend racing Mt. Gaoligong Ultra and visiting Tengchong and Yunnan province, in this southwest region of China. Like all of us in the inaugural running, you will experience one of the most exciting, and meaningful journeys of your lifetime.
