Video: Running the John Muir Trail with Endurance Athlete François D’Haene

French ultrarunner François D’Haene is always on the lookout for a new challenge and after completing a run along the grueling GR20 trail on the island or Corsica, he was looking for a new destination to test him physically and mentally. In October, 2017 he found it in the form of the John Muir Trail. In this video, we join François as he sets out to run the trail end-to-end, covering 359 km (223 miles) in the process. As you’ll see, it was everything he had hoped for and more. (Note: Be sure to turn on closed captioning to translate from French to English.)
