Best Ultra Run Experience:
Western States(1996)was my best experience. The helpfulness of the spectators,the wonderful landscape and the extreme climate was unique.
Running on the absolute altitude with thunderstorms surrounding me at the Leadville Trail,was a strange experience for me.
I participated three times at La Reunion, because the totally different landscapes impressed me.On the one hand dense jungle, on the other hand volcanic rocks. (14,ooom+/-difference of altitude)
Ultras are a kind of life-philosophy for me- running ultras is simply my hobby.
This race seems to be a new challenge for me, because of it´s extreme conditions. Me and my family drove two times through Death Valley and we were fascinated by the impressions the countryside overs.
I would prbably publish an article about the experiences made at the race,in a german newspaper.
