Photographer's Note

He was one of the 116 runners that day, tough enough to complete the 21km of lung bursting bone jarring run of the Mt. Kinabalu International Climbathon which is dubbed as the World Toughest Mountain Race. This year, it's the 22nd edition.

Isidro Patena Vildosola comes from The Philippine and he made 28th in 3hrs 35min 15s. In the photo, he has another 300m to go, to step on the summit of Low's Peak. He was flagged off at 7am and he made summit around 9.20pm. Not bad at all considering he has only his left arm to balance his run along the rocky and slippery mountain trail either on his way up or especially down the mountain. Or catch his fall.

Even the 2nd runner up, Toru Miyahara who made it in 2hrs 49min 2s, slipped and fell a few times on the way down the slippery trail.
