“Alex Nichols of the United States took the lead in the Mont Blanc 80 KM, a grueling skyrunning race in the #ChamonixValley, in southeastern France. Participants covered 80 kilometers — that’s about 50 miles — on foot. But the distance was the easy part. Runners climbed a total of 20,000 feet in ascents, dipped into Switzerland and crossed a glacier before dashing across the finish line. And all in less than 24 hours, the race’s time cap. @moraphoto photographed the #MontBlanc80, which Alex won in 10 hours, 31 minutes.” By nytimes on Instagram.
