A few days back we shared the story of Spanish mountain runner Kilian Jornet breaking a 36 year old running record in the Lake District of the U.K. Rounding into form after suffering a broken leg this past spring, Jornet managed to cover the 62 mile (100 km) route, which features 42 individual peaks, in 12 hours and 52 minutes. In the video below, we’ll join him out on the trail as he goes for this impressive record. You’ll get a chance to see Kilian in action and see the terrain that he took on as part of this adventure. If I didn’t already have the utmost respect for his accomplishments, this clip would certainly add to it.
