‘A lover of mountains’, according to ultramarathoner and adventurer of the year (2013) Kilian himself. Born in Spain, Kilian grew up running the trails in the Pyrenees. Nowadays he pretty much wins every running race between 1 to 200 kilometers. As long as the surface is unpaved and the track goes up and down, Kilian is up for it. He has created a special form of mountaineering by integrating running and climbing. With his newest project ‘Summits of my Life’, he sets running records on the highest and most prestigious summits of the world. And believe it or not, everywhere he goes, he takes his camera with him and shares his experience on social media.
