#NatGeo’s 2014 Adventurer of the Year: Kilian Jornet

Kilian Jornet, our 2014 People’s Choice Adventurer of the Year, is redefining what is possible in the mountains by blurring the lines between trail running and technical climbing. In 2013, the 26-year-old Catalonian set a new speed record running up and down the Matterhorn in two hours and 52 minutes. He also set a record on Mont Blanc. These peaks are part of his four-year Summits of My Life project, in which Jornet will attempt new speed records on the world’s most iconic mountains. 

See photos, selected from Jornet’s Instagram feed, that show his life and love of the mountains from his own point of view. Then learn about what motivates him in this video.
