Unbreakable at Western State 100 mile endurance run.
Are you into Trail Running? Well if you are, you definitely heard of the 4 kings of Trail running, if not I have listed them below:
1) Killian Jornet
2) Hal Koerner
3) Geoff Roes
and my favourite
4) Anton Krupicka whom I got the honors to run with, when he was in Singapore a while back (read the post here)
and now imagine this, as in the comic named “What if” where they pair Superheros to go against each other where it will never happen for example like Superman vs Hulk, or Wolverine Vs Batman hence the comic title what if, so this time as love for trail running,
JourneyFilm documented the Western States 100-mile endurance race and capturing the 4 giants going against each other.
HOW COOL IS THAT !!
In 2010, four of the greatest undefeated mountain runners on earth toed the starting line at the Western States 100-mile endurance run, the oldest and most prestigious 100-mile foot race in the world.
‘Unbreakable: The Western States 100’ follows the four lead men on this amazing journey. Hal Koerner, two time defending Western States champion, and running store entrepreneur from Ashland, Oregon. Geoff Roes, undefeated at the 100-mile distance, an organic chef from Juneau, Alaska. Anton Krupicka, undefeated in every ultramarathon he has ever started, a graduate student living in Boulder, Colorado. Kilian Jornet, the young mountain runner and two time Ultra-trail du Mont-Blanc champion, from Spain.
While their lives may be quite different, the goal is the same: win the Western States 100-mile run. A win will require breaking the course record and running the fastest time in the history of the race. An epic showdown ensues, from Squaw Valley, CA in Lake Tahoe, up though the high snow covered Sierra Nevada Mountains, down through the extreme heat of the American River Canyons and finishing in Auburn, CA.
Though all four are undefeated, three must break and only one can remain Unbreakable.

Come October I will be running my first Ultra Trail, who knows what will happen then and beyond. All I can say now is that trail running ain’t as easy as it looks. Yeah I have done the previous TNF50 in back in 2011, but its nothing compared to this guys doing the 100MILES.
Wish me luck come OCT, hope no legs will be broken neither my spirit for running. Cheers and have a great week ahead. its Monday after all
