Kilian Jornet

At only 26, the ski mountaineering racer and ultra trail runner is already a multiple record holder and winner of numerous world titles in ski alpinism and mountain marathons.

Kilian’s year of races and training involves the equivalent in height gain of over 70 ascents of Everest and he often runs to the summit of Mont Blanc (4810 metres) for his morning training run.

He has recently been named as National Geographic’s Adventurer of the Year for 2013.
