Win a signed copy of Summits of My Life

Last updated: 17-Jan-19

A special Christmas treat and opportunity for you. Every month we give away a pack of 33Shake gels for the best runner race review each month.

For the month of December we’re also going to award this fabulous prize of Kilian Jornet’s Summits of My Life book personally signed by Kilian, for the best kit or race review posted on RunUltra’s website before midnight December 31st, 2018.

Kilian Jornet is one of the world’s fastest mountain climbers, ultrarunners and ski mountaineers. His Summits of My Life project is his most ambitious achievement.  Kilian has challenged ascent and descent records for some of the world’s most important mountains such as Mont Blanc, the Matterhorn, Mt. Elbrus, Denali, Aconcagua, and Mount Everest.  He also broke the Bob Graham Round record this summer. 

The book gives a real insight into Kilian’s talent in ultrarunning, climbing and skiing. Kilian has made worldwide headlines with his superhuman climbs and achievements.

In this illustrated, inspirational account, Kilian documents his successful attempts to set new roundtrip FKTs (fastest-known times).  

Summits of My Life includes his preparation, his successes and failures, facts and elevation maps, and mind-blowing statistics, along with Kilian’s personal commentary and inspiring photographs.
With every new record, Jornet achieves the unthinkable and pushes the boundaries of   ultrarunning, and mountaineering.
