Mini CV
I am an Spanish amateur runner who enjoys running, the longer the better, therefore I like ultras, and specially the real and original one, the Spartathlon.
After years training and racing, at my 52 years old, I am getting my best results, including a first position in a 24 hours race in Madrid, and a 38nd position in the Marathon des Sables 2018.
After the COVID I have returned to good results with a 205 km in the 24 hour Barcelona 2021
Now I feel prepared for the Spartathlon and look forward into it

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.
