Mini CV
After many marathons I discover the world of ultra distance first of all in the trail running world (3 time finisher UTMB, 1 time TOR Des Geants, 1 time GUCR, 1 time Thames Ring and many others) and then on the road (4 time finisher Novecollirunning, 1 time finisher Spartathlon, 2 time finisher 100k Buenne Biel and many others). I'm a triathlete to with 5 IM finished including Norseman and Altriman which are extreme IM distance triathlon. As you can see ultra efforts are may passion and I'm very proud to be one of the few people who finished both Spartahlon and TOR des Geants.

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.
