Mini CV
I am a passionate and dedicated French-Canadian ultra-runner living in Singapore. Since my debut in ultra-running races, I just love pushing myself to go farther and beyond. Last year I had my entry for Spartathlon but because of unfortunate events I had to forfeit my entry for the race. It was a painful decision for me.

On the 26 november 2017, I arrived first overall at the 'Melaka Ultra 100' miles in Malaysia with a time of 21h24.
Also, In the summer 2015, I ran 3010km in 72 days, self-supported accross Japan. This means 1consecutive full marathon a day for 72 days.
Now, my next big goal is to run the Africa continent from North to South. Approximately 14 000km in 1 year and 3 months. I will be the first female to accomplish it. I'm already registered for the record in the "Guiness world Record" .

Next April 2018, I will run for the second time "Sakura Michi, 250km" in Japan. It is a real honor to hit the 250km road in Japan, that will be a true preparation for Sparathlon.

I also accomplished the following races in the past years:
Sakura Michi, 250km in 35h02 (Japan)
Salomon Wadi Bih Run, 72 Km in 7h51 (UAE)
100 Meilen Berlin, in 21h19 (3 female overall- Germany)

Running the Spartathlon will be a major goal and one of the biggest running achievment in my career. The Sparathlon is such a mythical race. It will be a real privileged and honor to finally run this route. I know that I have the physical and mental capacities to succeed this epic race. I really hope that I will be on the starting line in 2018.

Thank you,

Kind Regards

Race #BIB C/P Time







Described as the world's most grueling race, the Spartathlon runs over rough tracks and muddy paths (often it rains during the race), crosses vineyards and olive groves, climbs steep hillsides and, most challenging of all, takes the runners on the 1,200 meter ascent and descent of Mount Parthenio in the dead of night.
This is the mountain, covered with rocks and bushes, on which it is said Pheidippides met the god Pan.

Spartathlon is the event that brings this deed to attention today by drawing a legend out of the depths of history. The idea for its creation is belongs to John Foden, a British RAF Wing Commander. As a lover of Greece and student of ancient Greek history, Foden stopped his reading of Herodotus' narration regarding Pheidippides, puzzled and wondering if a modern man could cover the distance from Athens to Sparta, i.e. 250 kms, within 36 hours.
