Duo victorious at fourth Red Bull K3 run up punishing Rocciamelone mountain.

Martin Anthamatten and Camilla Magliano triumphed at the fourth edition of Red Bull K3 up the punishing Rocciamelone mountain in Italy’s Piedmont region.

Swiss vertical runner Anthamatten set a new race record of one hour 58 minutes and 53 seconds over the 9.7km course that has a gruelling 3,036m vertical climb, the first ever person to break the two-hour mark.

Compatriot Remì Bonnet, who won the men’s race back in 2015, claimed silver in 2h00m30s with Italian Nadir ‘Mago’ Maguet securing bronze in a time of 2h05m24s.

Italy’s Magliano was the class act in the women’s race with her winning time of two hours 29 minutes and 36 seconds seeing off Switzerland’s Victoria Kreuzer (2h31m38s) and Spaniard Maite Maiora (2h33m03s).

Red Bull K3’s ascent to the 3,538m Rocciamelone summit is the equivalent of running up 1,000 staircases or careering up 10 Eiffel Towers stacked on top of each other in 30-degree temperatures.
