When did you start running and why?
I started running in 2015 after many years of mountaineering, climbing, skiing
mountaineering, trekking all over the world. I wanted to move fast for
many km.

The most beautiful / fun memory / racing experience
The best ride was the SWISSPEACK 360

How do you train, do you have a training system?
I don’t have a training method. I generally run 200/120 km at
week with 4000d +. I run all year or I’m in the mountains all year.
The important thing is to have fun.

Ideal travel distance?
My ideal distance is over 150km

The ideal day to run is (where, with whom, how)?
For me the ideal days are Saturday and Sunday is during the week
Tuesday and Wednesday, almost always alone.

The ideal day you don’t run is it?
I don’t usually run on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, because rest is part
of training

What would I do if, through evolution, man did not develop into a runner?
If I couldn’t run, I would walk. If I couldn’t walk I would swim,
the important thing is to enjoy nature and life.

Favorite literature / movies about running, training, nutrition, philosophy, …
I don’t have any movies or specific reading about running. I like books by
adventure, my favorite book and Endurance by Alfred Lansing

Have you already performed UTVV, what is it that sticks in your memory? If not, what are you waiting for? 🙂
I have never raced at UTVV, I am registered for the 2021 edition

Best advice you’ve ever given / can give to others …
I have not received advice … the advice I can do is to enjoy the
nature and to preserve it, is the greatest experience that can be lived.
