Today's Stage - Stage 5 (The Long March, Camp Kongsu to Camp Kashgary): From Camp Kongsu, competitors will set out on the infamous "Long March," a nearly 80 kilometer stage that will take most competitors through the night. Competitors will begin with a gradual ascent in a canyon, up a pass, followed by a deep descent into a riverbed. The early section is rated difficult, but followed by a moderate terrain. There will be spectacular views of snow-capped mountains to the east. Distance: 78.7 kilometers (49.4 miles).
