Only Kilian would ask himself 'How many meters of elevation gain can I do in 24 hours?' Here is an extract from his blog on how he fuelled the adventure.

To focus. A test is when you isolate one variable and explore it to know who you are, which are your limits and capacities. Is not any interesting activity for anyone else than the person who do it for self knowledge.

Jornet wrote, in his ‘Food and drink log’
“The strategy was to take in around 250 cal / hour. I started eating gels after 1 hour and every 30 minutes from then on. I was taking Spring energy gel (Speednut – 235 cal, Long Haul – 110 cal, McRaecovery – 150 cal, Canaberry, Hill Aid – 100 cal) and Mountain Fuel jelly's (Cola, Orange and Lemon & Lime).”
