Christian knew the existing record would be tricky to beat. As Uhuru Peak is technically speaking a relatively easy mountain with a moderate height where he couldn t fully use his physical advantages. Hence the operation needed special training preparation with training units each consisting of 4.500m in order to get a feeling for the distance. This resulted in the fact that he found himself on the summit 3 times in the week before the skyrun in order to check out the perfect route. The winner was the Umbwe Route because there are 4 water spots that could be used for the skyrun. He started at Umbwe Gate as planned on 1.450 m. The challenge was to surmount 4.445m and 4 vegetation levels. Christian reached the summit in 5 h 36 min.
