Leor Pantilat grew up hiking and climbing the North Cascades of WA State where his interests in long distance running and mountain climbing fused together and evolved into his passion for adventure running, which is a unique discipline that allows one to explore nature’s beauty by accessing some of the most remote and rugged spots in a single day. Leor focuses his adventure running primarily in the High Sierra and the Santa Lucia Mountains of the Big Sur Coast. He has set numerous FKT (Fastest Known Time) records including the iconic John Muir Trail from Mt. Whitney to Yosemite Val- ley, the High Sierra Trail, the Lost Coast of Northern California and Cone Peak along the Big Sur Coast. Leor also enjoys photographing the remote and rugged locales that he visits, resulting in tens of thousands of photos. Leor is a Stanford Law graduate and a full-time lawyer who is constantly seeking to balance his work and his passion for the outdoors.
