  • They have respected the values of trail-running
  • They have contributed to develop the global ultra-trail community

Best memory from trail-running:

Finishing my first 100 mile race at Leadville 2010.

Why have you chosen this sport?

I love mountains and the international trail running community. I love making new friends everywhere I go and living a healthy lifestyle.

How long have you been running (ultra-) trail races?

Since 2009.

Which is your favourite race of the UTWT? And why?

The Western States 100 because of the tradition and prestige of the event. It’s a fair course and close to my home in Northern California. It’s a very special race.

Do you have any recommendations for preparing/running an ultra-trail?

Resolve to finish under any circumstances well before you get to the start line.

What is your favourite proverb?

« To launch big ships, you have to go where the water is deep. » – Unknown

Do you have a habit you always follow before a race?

I have coffee and toast about 90 minutes before the start.
