Mini CV
the Dream of running the Sparthlaton is still with me. It would be so Amazing trying to reach the finish line. I remember many years ago, when i saw some Pictures of this and i thought that this is something i can never be able to do. And here i am, the wish of running the race with an Believe of kissing the foot and passing the finish line.

Last year, 2019, i ran my first 24 h competition with 203 km and first lady of the race. I also particpated in Super Balaton Marathon where i was 2 of the women and did the whole race under 17 h, approx under 5min/km every day. I also ran 42 km within 3h 10 min and completed my first 6h race with over 71 km.
In 2018, I ran 2 of 100 miles races and was the first lady in goal for the both races. The TEC 100 miles, 1 lady and in GAZ first lady and shared 2 place in the total of men and women. The finish time was 19 hours.

I would love to take the next challenge and run the Sparthlaton. I have heard so much about how the race and all good things and i would like to take on the challenge and be one of the happy once to reach the finish line :-)

i ran 24 h Endurance race in Finland on the 22-23 of Feb with the result 214,522 km.

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.
