Athlete / Trailblazer with a purpose
Kilian Jornet is considered one of the best mountain athletes in the world. For the last 15 years, he has dominated the ski mountaineering and trail running scenes, winning all major championships and races across the globe.
Growing up in a hut in the Spanish Pyrenees, the mountains have always been his playground whether running, climbing or skiing. As a multi-disciplinary athlete, he also holds speed records in mountains around the world, including a double ascent to Mount Everest.
Nowadays, Kilian lives in Norway where he continues to explore his limits in mountain sports and to inspire a large community with movies, books and digital content. Kilian has also become a climate advocate working to raise awareness about environmental protection.
