Toughest 50K

Lots of talk of the "toughest 50k" out there or the "50k that runs like a 50 mile". Not sure what all the fuss is about cause last time I checked there weren't any 50km races with more climbing than Hardrock. Well, this should settle things:

Avalanche 50K - Silverton, Colorado - Summer 2013

~31.3 miles
~41,650 feet of climbing
