55 years old and I run since the age of 16. I begun by 400 Meters hurdles race when I was young and after studies, I cannot go further to practice my speciality. But I keep nearly my running shoes, to run each time, I can and anywhere I go .
My wife was born in Corsica and in the past, I noticed the “INTERLACS race” near the town of Corte. I’ve got memories because it was my first race and I met Dawa Dachhiri SHERPA (amazing, humble and simple person). VULCAIN race (In central massif in France) was a wonderful race with snow and beautiful weather and landscapes too. But I like running in my area too, (VOSGES mountains) and the Glen lacs race near GERARDMER Town is really as hard as one of the difficult ALPES races, I’ve done.
Of course UTMB is a big event , I’ve done and occasion to meet lot foreign ultra racers.
For me : running is a sort of Universal way to communicate with everybody in the world.
Why the WHW Race?
A return to memories ( my wedding trip in this special area in Scotland, 26 years ago) and a deeply wish to run in this open landscape to feel the most I’ll could, your beautiful country, meet persons who live in Scotland too, if I can.
Aim for the Race?
I’m surely not the stronger racer of course but I will do my best to succeed in and join the arrival because it’ll be : a goal for me and for my family and friendly team and my tribute to thank you to trust in me and this marvellous chance to come back.
See you soon, my “team” and me are in a hurry to come !
