I was born in Erlangen, Bavaria, and have enjoyed living in Forchheim, Upper Franconia, since my early childhood. I began to run as a training for my alpine climbing. Running fast became a passion. Hence I ran my first marathon in Munich in 2015. I’m active for the Erlebnis-Team, through which I quickly discovered the ultra distances, especially in the mountains, for me.
To me very run is a highlight.One of the first trails that comes to mind is the Mozart 100 in the Austrian Alps, at which I came home as the third German, having run 112 km and managing an elevation gain of about 5,000 m. Mountain peaks also are highlights for me, as for instance the Cho Oyu in Tibet whose 8201 m I did in 2018.
Why I am a 7CRun Ambassador:
To me the world of the runners is a wonderful, friendly and family-like community. With the help of 7CRun we can further intensify this common bond and give something back. Donating and supporting great projects is especially valuable in the present corona times.
