My impressions of the different ways people grab water at a water station during a long distance race. #running #marathon
It’s time for a 4-litre twin-turbo V8 showdown! The Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door is a favourite of ours when it comes to drag races, and it’s easy to see why, given it can put down 639hp & 900Nm of torque! As for the RS7? It’s got the same engine, but the power stats are lower! So will the weight advantage push it across the line first? There’s only one way to find out… LET’S RACE!
A marathon is far enough for most people. Mr Germain Grangier isn’t most people. The ultra-runner and On Running athlete regularly competes in races of 100km or more – distances that require him to run through the night. In 2019, he completed his first UTMB® (Ultra-Trail du Mont Blanc) – all 171km of it – finishing in just over 23 hours in a highly respectable 10th place. What drives a man to seek out the limits of human endurance? In this short film, shot on location in the French Alps earlier this year, MR PORTER tags along on one of Mr Grangier’s training runs in the hope of getting some insight into the mindset of an ultra-athlete.
