EP 534: Kilian Up Close: Trail Running, Risk Taking, Family & More with the World's Greatest Trail Runner
Kilian Jornet, 33, is one of our generation's greatest endurance athletes. He is a six-time Skyrunner World Series champion, and has stood atop the podium at trail races around the wold, most notably the Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc, Western States Endurance Run, and Hardrock Hundred Mile Run. Jornet has set fastest known times on mountain peaks from the Matterhorn to Mont Blanc and holds numerous ski mountaineering records.
Guest Hosts Anna Frost and Stephanie Howe speak with Kilian from his home in a quiet Norwegian village where he lives with his wife, noted trail racer Emilie Forsberg, two daughters, a labradoodle, eleven sheep and a menagerie of farm animals.
You will find that Kilian is humble and thoughtful. You will find out where he ranks a 24-hour track run on his "fun scale". He is passionate about our environment and brining up his family and teaching future generations about how to keep the planet safe.
