Andreas Steindl, a Swiss alpinist and adidas Outdoor athlete, recently did a remarkable bit of running. He ran more than 19 miles (30.66 kilometers) from Zermatt to Saas Fee in Switzerland—by crossing five peaks that exceed 4,000 meters (13,120 feet).
Even more remarkable is the time he pulled it off in. To run 19 miles, with nearly 13,500 feet of elevation gain over pathless terrain, glaciers and exposed ridges, Steindl needed just 7:45:44.
Here’s a video from Epic TV documenting the impressive feat:
