We fast packed / ran a sections of the trail finished just a couple of days ago... the most challenging thing we have done for sure, mainly due to the fact we were doing 2 or 3 stages a day. Our last stage was 53km due to being held up by storms the previous day! However, with some good general endurance fitness it can be done comfortably in 7 and at a push 6, - 5 is for the truly hard core! :-)
Some good food along the way - to be fair we would have hoovered anything up! 6 Euros a Beer is well worth it after a hard slog....stage 7 was the trickiest for us, although the cirque needs care too, stage 7 had a lot of snow - so without poles and running shoes, this was a little sketch... next time we will bring trekking poles .... not for the faint hearted but don't make the mistake that so many seemed to have made and bring an enourmous 20kg pack..... our packs were 6.5kg.... the way forward! Bon chance
