Countless Significant Mountain Ascent/Descent Records and FKTs
There is arguably no greater all-around mountain athlete in the world than Kilian Jornet. Growing up in the Pyrenees Mountains, Kilian began summiting mountains at just 3 years old. He burst onto the mountain/trail running scene in his late teens and in 2007 won his first of 10 Sky Running World Series. The next year he would win the prestigious UTMB for the first of 3 times between 2008 and 2011. It is hard to find a major Mountain or Trail race that Kilian hasn’t won, having been crowned champion of Western States, Sierre-Zinal, Pikes Peak Marathon, Zegama, Hardrock, Marathon du Mont Blanc and many, many more.
Perhaps what makes Kilian so special as an athlete, is that he is world-class not just in running but also in Ski Mountaineering, a discipline in which he has competed since 2002 winning European and World Championships in every age bracket along the way. Kilian now resides in Norway with his partner Emelie Forsberg and their two daughters.

People don’t call Hillary Allen the “Hillygoat” for nothing: She has quickly proven her ability as a fast runner in the mountains, especially when the trail turns towards the sky. Originally a tennis player, Allen didn’t take up distance running until grad school, when she needed an outlet to clear her mind while on her degree in neuroscience. She linked up with a few local runners and never looked back, quickly achieving podium results in long distance trail races. Since then, her running has taken her to races around the world, where she continues to rack up podium finishes and set course records, while maintaining a humble attitude and great sense of humor while doing it.
