“Three men and a mountain, three men and an impossible adventure. An expedition to the most untamed Nepal, that of distant horizons and most remote peaks, with improbable climbs, intrepid descents, challenges, risks, dangers and life and death decisions. An expedition that is both an investigation, an escape and a reunion, where emotions and feelings are multiplied and feeling under the skin; where words, silences and memories acquire new depths.”
With humility and simplicity, Kilian Jornet invites us on his second book to run, to go further and to dare to explore the invisible border that separates sadness to happiness, life and death.
“This second book is more of a personal quest in search of both physical and emotional boundaries.”
The book is available (HERE) in Catalan, Spanish and French. Unfortunately no English version is available yet. It is possible to sign up for news here
WE HAVE 2-COPIES of KILIAN JORNET‘s book RUN or DIE to giveaway.
(With luck, I may be able to get these books signed by Kilian himself at LimoneExtreme.)
In association with Penguin Books, the UK publisher of RUN or DIE we have 2-copies of Kilian’s book to giveaway.
We are delighted to announce the book has just been longlisted for the 2014 William Hill Sports Book of the Year Award. We believe it’s the first book about ultra and trail running to receive a nomination (it’s normally lots of books about football and cycling!).
RUN or DIE is a captivating read and we hope it will inspire more mainstream books on the subject. The wider public deserves to know about the sport!

Looks like the wait is over… ‘Run or Die’ by Kilian Jornet is now available to ‘pre order’ in English for July 2013 delivery.
Kiss or kill. Go for glory or die trying.
This is the extreme philosophy of an extreme athlete. A hero. An extraordinary person. An exceptional competitor. Kilian Jornet is a world champion ultra-runner, and before age 25 had conquered some of the toughest physical tests on the planet. He has run the great Mt. Kilimanjaro faster than any other human being, and struck down world records in every challenge that has been proposed.
Run or Die is not just Jornet’s story, but his philosophy of life.
