There is already a date for the challenge of the 24 hours of Kilian Jornet

The ultra-distance runner has confirmed that he will do the challenge this Friday.

Kilian Jornet will attack the 24-hour record on the track this Friday, November 27, starting at 10:30 a.m.

He will try to exceed the 303,506 kilometer mark achieved by Yiannis kouros, in 1997 running at an average of 12,646 km / h.

As you already announced, I was waiting for there to be a window of good weather for the test, and finally after a few days of waiting you will be able to do it.

The challenge will take place on the 400-meter tartan track in Måndalen (Norway) without an audience due to the coronavirus pandemic. Temperatures are expected between 0 degrees at night and 5 during the day.

To avoid injuries, Jornet will change direction every four hours, and several Norwegian athletes specialized in long distance will compete alongside him.

«Preparation is 99% of a project and for the Phantasm24 it has been interesting.

 At the beginning of the season I knew that I wanted to try different training sessions and distances on the flat without any specific objective, so I was trying different series, everything that the injuries allowed, until I set the 24-hour challenge.»

These are his times in the different distances in which he has competed., Which can be consulted in an integral way in this link
