Ridiculous: Kilian Journet runs Kilimanjaro in 7:14

7 hour and 14 minutes – sounds like a long time to be out running, but not when placed into the context of running up Mt. Kilimanjaro and back. Seems incredible then that this is all it took Kilian Jornet to achieve the amazing feat earlier today…

This latest, and well publicised, episode of the young athlete’s amazing Quest to complete some utterly astounding ultra-trail and mountain running achievements, was completed in full gaze of the humble and remarkable Simon M’Tuy. A man who held the record, until today, and has been so supportive and inspirational to the whole of the Salomon crew on location in Africa.
