Outrun The Sun
On Saturday June 21st 2014, the longest day of the year, we hosted a world-first trail challenge as two relay teams of runners attempted to ‘Outrun The Sun’ around the Mont Blanc – Western Europe’s highest peak.
The Outrun the Sun challenge started and finished in Chamonix, covering 152km of mountainous terrain, with the athletes climbing 8,450 metres of crippling ascent through France, Italy and Switzerland.
The challenge – to finish the race in the time between sunrise and sunset – was captured on camera and the result is a unique documentary, titled ‘Outrun The Sun’. Created by production company Sunset+Vine, the film follows the trials and tribulations of each athlete as they embark on the toughest challenge of their careers. It captures every last moment of blood, sweat and tears. …
