Video: Running the Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc with Luís Alberto Hernando

The Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc is widely recognized as one of the toughest ultra-marathons in the world. Circling the iconic mountain from which it derives its name, it challenges runners to cover more than 166 km (103 miles), passing through three different countries in the process. This year, Spanish endurance athlete Luís Alberto Hernando set out to run the UTMB for the first time. It would be his first race of that distance, and it would end up testing him in new ways. This short documentary takes us out on the trail with Luís as he runs through the Alps, learning more about himself and what he is capable of along the way. Most of us will never run these kinds of distances, but there are still good things to be learned here.
