Just 10 runners competed in the 2017 Yuzhu Peak FKT race, which was held this summer for the second year in a row. The event takes runners 12 kilometers out and back to the summit of Yuzhu Peak (20,420 feet) on China’s Tibetan plateau, making it the highest trail race in the world.

This video, by The Crew, follows the field of elite runners who came out to attempt the race in 2017, including former Hardrock 100 champs Anna Frost and Jason Schlarb, and former World Skyrunning Champion Stevie Kremer.
