When Pau Capell unveiled his project « Breaking 20 » for which he was trying to beat his own record from last season UTMB® win, we immediately talked about his training process.

During the discussion we asked him what was one of his favorite training. This is how we ended up with this specific challenge : try to run 20km and 1000m+ elevation (ie : 30 km/E) in less than 2h30minutes.

This is a distance and elevation Pau likes to run in addition to his everyday training. Are you going to take up this challenge ?
