LUIS ALBERTO HERNANDO, FKT ANETO
TOTAL 3H38M ASCENT 2.14 / DESCENT 1H24.
Today, Thursday, July 15, the three-time ultras world champion Luis Hernando, has launched to lower the FKT ráoida mark of ascent-descent to the Aneto peak from Benasque.
After not having been able to run the recent Skyrunning World Cup because it was not possible for him to attend the previous FEDME call, Luis was looking today to set a goal in an atypical season. So, he has chosen the Aneto because it is the highest peak in the Pyrenees and because it is a goal that will force him to squeeze to the maximum.
The current record belonged to the Cantabrian Borja Fernández who in August 2020 reduced by 9′ the ascent / descent time of Quico Soler leaving the new time in 3h43’09”. Fernández also beat the record of the ascent that in 2017, Marc Pinsach set in 2h20’15” and that he lowered to 2h18’36”.
