Zermatt / Herzogenaurach, 20 August 2015 – Swiss alpinist and adidas Outdoor athlete Andreas Steindl (26) has accomplished what most people deem impossible: he ran 30.66 kilometres from Zermatt to Saas Fee crossing five 4000m peaks, including the Dom, the highest mountain lying entirely in Switzerland, in a time that awes even the most experienced mountain guides. For the 4,014 metres vertical ascent across pathless terrain, glaciers and exposed ridges, Steindl needed only 7 hours, 45 minutes and 44 seconds.
