Yurik summitting trekking trip

Yurik Norton recently summitted some of the worlds most famous peaks on a 105 mile round trip trek. He¬†summitted Kala Patthar (18,514′), Gokyo Ri (17,575′), Everest Base Camp (17,598′), and Cho La Pass (17,782′). Total elevation gain was 21,000′, total distance hiked was 105 miles, total trip length was 2.5 weeks.

Yurik worked with SE coach Mitchell Sides. They worked a lot on VO2 max and weight lifting for long trekking distances and low oxygen levels.

“Working with Source Endurance I was by far the fittest of the group. To handle this type of trek at any significant speed I would recommend a reasonable to high level of training,” Yurik recommended.
Yurik, we’re impressed! Congrats on such a great accomplishment and what an experience you’ll remember for a lifetime.
