Kilian Jornet is a professional ultramarathoner, trail runner, ski mountaineer, and mountain running world champion. Born and raised at 6,000 feet above sea level in the Spanish Pyrenees, Jornet climbed an 11,000 foot mountain — the highest mountain in the region — at age 5. His mother taught him skills to survive the high alpine environment, and today during races he takes energy from the mountains around him.
