Mini CV
I'm fairly new in ultrarunning, 6 years.
I ran a few 100miles, roads and trails, organize and fun run
I ran a few 100k to 125k, all on trails
And 1x24h race on track (204km)
I will be at the start line of Spartathlon to have fun and deliver my message to Sparta like Pheidippides did back in 490 BC.
See you there

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.
