Kilian Jornet recovers sensations. The best mountain runner in the world He has once again felt the thrill of putting on a race number and competing. It has not been in any test of the Sky Running world circuit or in some emblematic place or journey as he usually gives us every year, but has run in a trail race close to home.

The important thing was the opportunity to return to competition and experience something that this 2020 has deprived him of doing. And, obviously, win. The Catalan ‘trail runner’ has participated in the ‘Moonvalley Run Festival’, a test that, according to he himself recounts on his social networks, consists of joining the 17 lakes that provide water to Mandalen, a beautiful valley in Norway, where he lives with his Jornet family.

Start and end on 'your' track

In fact, Kilian accompanies the explanation with several videos in which you can appreciate the diversity of the circuit, with areas of rocks, grass, with the typical marks to guide the runners we miss so much ... In this race the runners themselves They must bring their GPS and a mobile phone to orient themselves and both the goal and the finish are located on the athletics track where Kilian has given us in recent months with some other series training. With the number 30, Kilian took the ribbon with the illusion of the first day after a totally atypical 2020 in which he had not yet been able to feel the excitement of competing.
