Report

Prior to Jornet, Sean Burch claimed the speed record for the ascent of Kilimanjaro, 5h28m58s on June 7, 2005, via the Marangu Route. This record has been questioned by Team Kilimanjaro, who had (prior to Jornet) credited the legendary Italian mountain runner Bruno Brunod with the ascent record of 5h38m40s, set November 22, 2001, also via the Marangu. Brunod descended in 2h56m12s, for a round-trip time of 8h34m52s.
