Watch Kilian Jornet run a Vertical Kilometer

Amazing video—at first I didn’t quite internalize just what running 1000 meters of elevation means. And I was amused to see Kilian using poles, at least at points.

The goat!!

From downtown Ithaca to the top of Connecticut Hill is only (2050-380 = 1670)’ = 509 meters! so just over 1/2 km vertical.
