Jornet is running at a track in Måndalen, Norway, about six hours north of Oslo. He and Salomon were teasing the event for the past week, but poor weather conditions forced them to put it off until the forecast showed clear skies. Finally, the ideal day is on its way, and Jornet is running to try to beat the record which is 303,506 km by Yiannis Kouros, 23 years ago. If you want to watch him live, he will be running until tomorrow 11:00 CET.
