Switzerland

On an annual basis, a sports event takes place in the Jungfrau area of Switzerland. The Inferno covers different challenges including a half-marathon, a thriathlon and a fun triathlon. The half-marathon, shown in this photo, is a 21km run with a more than 2000m height difference running from Lauterbrunnen (795m above sea level) to the top of Schilthorn (2970m above sealevel). The race passes through Murren, where this photo was taken.

The triathlon also passes by the same location and includes 3.1km swimming on Thuner lake, 97km of road bking, 30km of mountain biking and 25km of running up Schilthorn similar to the half-marathon.

More information about he event can be found here.  This specific photo was taken during the 2012 event on a very warm day.

More About Europe

Europe is generally agreed to be the birthplace of western culture, including such legendary innovations as the democratic nation-state, football and tomato sauce.The word Europe comes from the Greek goddess Europa, who was kidnapped by Zeus and plunked down on the island of Crete. Europa gradually changed from referring to mainland Greece until it extended finally to include Norway and Russia.Don't be confused that Europe is called a continent without looking like an island, the way the other continents do. It's okay. The Ural mountains have steadily been there to divide Europe from Asia for the last 250 million years. Russia technically inhabits "Eurasia".Europe is presently uniting into one political and economic zone with a common currency called the Euro. The European Union originated in 1993 and is now composed of 27 member states. Its headquarters is in Brussels, Belgium.Do not confuse the EU with the Council of Europe, which has 47 member states and dates to 1949. These two bodies share the same flag, national anthem, and mission of integrating Europe. The headquarters of the Council are located in Strasbourg, France, and it is most famous for its European Court of Human Rights. In spite of these two bodies, there is still no single Constitution or set of laws applying to all the countries of Europe. Debate rages over the role of the EU in regards to national sovereignty. As of January 2009, the Lisbon Treaty is the closest thing to a European Constitution, yet it has not been approved by all the EU states. Text by Steve Smith.
