Jan Margarit flies up and down La Mola: 12.1 km and 680 +… in 54 minutes!
It was a personal challenge. In an atypical season, athletes are setting these goals to stay competitive and keep their bodies plugged in. Especially in the mountain racing section professional ‘trail’ runners have seen how their calendar was very much affected. Only a couple of tests have been contested, while the rest of the calendar of the 'sky running' world championship and other international races have been almost entirely canceled.
Jan Margarit, one of the most outstanding Spaniards in the discipline of 'trail running' and one of the greatest values for the future, has been one of those affected by this atypical season. The vallesano he proposed a ‘time trial’ and the truth is that he has embroidered his goal. He had proposed to go up and down the La Mola mountain, in Terrassa, in less than 59 minutes. Without a doubt, an ambitious challenge but one that I was sure to carry out.
“Enjoying like a child this morning at La Mola! 54:51 ′ of pleasure and giving it watching the sunrise on this mountain that I like so much, far exceeding my best expectations! Thank you very much to all of you who have been there and to those who have encouraged me, to all my family ”, he posted on Instagram. It has covered 12.1km of distance and 682 meters of positive slope in this record. How barbarous!
