Rinjani 100 Ultra 2022 opened 5 categories, namely the 162km, 119km, 75km, 36km and 27km run. Xu Lei participated in the 75km run, started from Belanting Beach to Rinjani Summit, then climbed up step and rough terrain, finished at the Village of Sembalun.
During the journey, Xu Lei crossed gnarled exposed roots, had his feet sink into loose scree, and scrambled over piles of rocks as he made his way into thinner and thinner air. Especially on loose volcanic ash, it can feel like every step forward took him a step back.
After a few hours, he finally did it. He conquered the beast, he got to the top of Mount Rinjani, 3726m (12224 ft), his pure will brought him there. The whole world was lying to his feet. The crater views at the summit are more than worth it, especially when they signal the start of a long, wonderful descent.
Xu Lei’s journey taught us to keep our goals in sight, don’t let quitting be an option and fight!
