New GR20 Record

I see that Skyrunner extraordinaire Kilian Jornet has just knocked 4 hours off the non-stop GR20 record in Corsica.

"Kilian Jornet, after struggling against the cruel heat, lack of sleep and painful limbs, pulverises the record for the GA20 non-stop in an astonishing 32 hours 54 minutes and 24 seconds"

Kilian crowned GR20 King, Conca June 16th 2009

The previous record was 36h53m set by Pierre Santucci in 2005.

Thanks for this news. I've been to Corsica and I've been to Bowland - there's a huge difference in environments. Well done Kilian.

Wow! I've been to Corsica and know about the GR20. That was a storming run.
