SOROKIN ULTRARUNNING WORLD RECORDS
The most media record of the best ultra long-distance runner in history, so it had been considered the mark of 303.3km set by Yiannis Kouros in 1997 A few months ago, we saw the assault made by Kilian Jornet in Norway, Kilian left after 135km in 10h19m at a pace of 4.35min/km.
Sorokin achieved in August 2021 the 2019 24-hour World Champion surpassed Yiannis Kouros’ 1997 world record of 303.3 km with no less than 33 minutes left in the race. In the final stretch, he turned to take the record to 309.4km.
A magical year: After setting a 100-mile world record of 11:14:56 in April this year at centurion, he then continued his run for another 45 minutes to set a 12-hour mark of 170.309 km.
SOROKIN, WORLD ULTRARUNNING KING
For the past six years, Sorokin has made his way to the top of the global ultra-fund. His quick start, his attitude of exrtemo pundonor little by little was giving him dividends. In 2019 he gave us a stellar performance with 278.972 km in Albi, France, to take the world championship.
Last years, for example in August 2020, at the same UltraPark event in Poland, Sorokin set an excellent time of 6:43:13 for 100 km. In fact, according to all the pools, the 100-mile record was already threatened at the beginning of 2021 in the Centurion Running event.
Now, after he started this 2022 in a splendid way, It has surpassed itself by a wide margin in addition. It leaves us with reasonable doubt as to how far can he go.
And of course, if the honorary title of best ultra-distance runner in history, held by Yiannis Kouros for more than 20 years, continues, he could finally find himself in danger.
ULTRARUNNING: AN EXTREMELY COMPLEX CHALLENGE.
And if, of course, as with the new world records in marathon and half marathon, there will be those who attribute Sorokin’s takeoff to the new era of carbon plates.
Now, as we saw with KIlian (without carbon, by the way) it is not as simple as training, applying the best technology of your brand and your team to start running for 24 hours.
Among other factors, nutrition and mentality must also be perfect, just as we have seen the popios Kilian Jornet and Eliud Kipchoge work thoroughly. And it’s never easy. It takes years to achieve such a performance, a secret formula that today in the UK, Sorokin knew how to combine perfectly.
