Imagine running 100-plus miles for more than 20 hours straight at extreme elevations on rugged terrain in brutal conditions. That’s the Ultra-Trail Mont Blanc, one of the world’s most prestigious
(and challenging) trail running events. Preparation is a year-round endeavor for athletes like Katia Fori and Li Kuo, who train a world apart yet share the same drive, determination, and ultimate destination. And while the race doesn’t officially start until August 26,
the road for Katia and Li has already begun.
