Name and surname: Loris Farolfi
Town where you live: Castel Bolognese
I’m Loris Farolfi, ultra trailer, for more than 10 years in the world of Trail Running. The mountains and nature are my second home and the pleasure of always discovering new trails and landscapes, leads me to travel to combine my passions: TRAIL RUNNING – PHOTOGRAPHY – TRAVEL. For several years I have been participating in races and I document them through my photos… to experience the race directly from inside. To stop the moments and the emotions that only Trail Running can give….This passion (which feeds itself daily) gives me the opportunity to visit fantastic places in Italy, Spain, France, Portugal and Greece.
When did you start running and why?
I started running 20 years ago and for more than 10 years I’m a trail runner too. So I combined my passion for the mountains and for the running… this is amazing!
I have a dream… run a race in every continent.
The most beautiful / fun running memory / experience…
Trail Menorca Camì de Cavalls, 360 round trip race of the island of Menorca – Spain
Menorca is my second »home« and I love run overthere because there are uphill, strong downhill, trail close to the sea, mountain and above all I had my family with me to follow me on the race.
