Fell Runner Shatters Record In Less Than 24 Hours
Fell running is one of the most aesthetically pleasing sports to participate in, it’s also one of the toughest. Scaling mountains at a canter can be tiring enough, but some folk have the mental fortitude and physical stamina to run up mountains!
One of the longest running records in the sport has just been shattered after standing strong for a staggering 23 years!
Kim Collison showed “peak form” (poor pun intended), by scaling a lung burning 78 peaks in less than 24 hours! Mark Hartell previously held the record that stood since ‘97, and it could be another couple of decades until someone cracks this effort.
In total he covered 109 miles with 39,000 ft elevation.
That’s like running 4 back to back marathons whilst climbing an elevation equivalent to Mount Everest and Mount Fuji stacked on top of each other!
