#13 - 'Mandalen 24 Hour Ultra' Champion, Harald Bjerke Flytrap Coalition Podcast

    • Health & Fitness

Coalition, what is up. If you follow Ultra Running you are probably aware of Kilian Jornet’s recent attempt to set the record for farthest distance covered in 24 hours at the Salomon Phantasm 24 hour race in Mandelen, Noway.
And if you followed that race you know that in the field of 6 highly decorated runners, it was the underdog, Harald Bjerke who ended up being crowned the Champ, completing over 232 kilometers or 139 miles in a single 24 hour period.
To make this even more incredible, Harald completed this distance by circling a 400 meter outdoor track in the below freezing temperatures of Norway.
In this episode Harald takes us through his race and details everything from his training, how he prepared mentally, his nutrition, race strategy, how he stays injury free, and much more.
At 45 years old Harald is just getting started in the sport of Ultra Running and I think he is a guy that you are going to continue to see more and more of in the elite field.
Thanks again, Harald- enjoyed it.
