Kilian's Mt Kinabalu Climbathon video

Team Salomon's latest video shows how Kilian Jornet won 25th Mt. Kinabalu International Climbathon 2011 in October. Italian Marco De Gasperi, who won last year, was 3 minutes 39 seconds ahead of Kilian at the summit. On the way down Kilian passed Marco and beat him by 44 seconds.

The race is only a half-marathon in length, but it's a steep course up and down Kinabalu. The highest point is Low's Point at 4095 meters. The lowest point is the finish at Kinabalu Park HQ (1564 m). Kinabalu is located in Borneo, the world's third largest island. The rain forest there is older than Amazon.
