Killer Videos of the Week - Jornet/De Gasperi duel in the Dolomites, Inside View of Timmy Olson's 2013 Win at Western States

I hope you all are having a great weekend! Perhaps you were watching Joe Gray and Morgan Arritola win the 2013 USA National Mountain Running Championships at Mt. Cranmore (and a shout out to Team inov-8 member Alex Nichols, who also earned a slot to compete at Worlds in Poland this year)...

...or you were stuck to your screen as Bob Shebest overcame record Tahoe heat to come within minutes of breaking the Tahoe Rim Trail 100m course record in his (18:05) win...

...perhaps you caught this video of Kilian Jornet and Marco de Gasperi duking it out (yet again!) in the Skyrunning Series, this time with a finish line sprint at the Val di Fassa in the Italian Dolomites (Emilie Forsberg also wins)...I watched this video five times already - it really captures the insanity of Skyrunning courses...

...and hopefully you've found this wonderfully intimate video of Timmy Olson's win at the 2013 Western States 100m Endurance Run, put together by his family and crew...


  1. thanks for these. I didn't even know what trail running was or of it's existence. Did a tough mudder in April...fell in love with running...trails. Read Born to Run, Eat and Run, and another ebook on trail running. And I can't get enough of trail running. Excited to go to sleep so I can wake up and run. Thanks for these videos and the blog

  2. Great videos, thank you :)

  3. The Dolomites video is awesome! I've always wanted to go rock climbing there, but the trail running looks pretty enticing too!
