Been a HUGE fan of ‘Skyrunner’ Kilian Jornet for 6 months now.  Being sports obsessed, I follow Jornet’s (almost) daily post & have become a die-hard Skyrunning fanatic (where Kilian ended this season, World Champion).

WATCH short clip – Kilian Jornet: Summits of my Life

Couldn’t have been more surprised/thrilled to find Kilian not only travelling to the US (competing at UROC in Vail on Saturday) but also visiting Boulder – to promote his book Run or Die.  WOW – I lead a charmed life 🙂

Arrived early enough for a 2nd row seat — LOVED the Q&A.  Colorado is flat, who knew?  Because of our extensive trail system in the States — and in particular, our use of switchbacks, races in the States generally favour ultra marathoners vs. technical climbers like Jornet.  Jornet, a Spaniard, excels in Europe where mountain racing means just that – running UP mountains.

Hung around to get my book signed & share a pic with Jornet.  Only in Colorado – LOVE LOVE this place!

Kilian Jornet takes the Skyrunner® Ultra title for the second time since the introduction of the distance in the World Series last year.

 

The five-race Series, after the previous epic events at Transvulcania, Ronda dels Cims, Ice-Trail and Speedgoat, concluded Sunday in Vail, Colorado at the 100 km Ultra Trail of Champions (UROC) with one of the deepest Ultra fields seen in recent times.
