Mount Kilimanjaro is immensely important to anyone living in its shadow. Hoping to give back to this mountain and celebrate its beauty, Simon Mtuy has big plans to promote trail running on 'the roof of Africa.' This video chronicles the small group of ultra runners who helped put trail running on the map in Tanzania. They also helped Simon Mtuy realize his long standing dream of running around the base of Mount Kilimanjaro. These athletes ran 160 Miles in eight days, through deep tropical valleys, high mountain ridge lines and across open plains. The five international and five local Tanzanian endurance athletes became the first people to circumnavigate the tallest free standing mountain in the world on foot.
