Ultra-trail on Eurosport!


It seems that 2011 will be the year that trail running makes the move into the mainstream. A few days ago the Ultra Trail du Mont Blanc was covered on Eurosport in many languages across Europe. This media coverage is making household names of the likes of Kilian Jornet and Sebastien Chaigneau, and the increased profile of the sport is going to attract thousands more to dream of competing in the same race as their heros. For anyone who has heard me whinging about ‘hurty legs’ (that’s the technical name for them) since the race, have a look at the film above. If you aren’t inspired by the landscapes, emotions, and people, you have no soul!
