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.

Weird Experience:

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.

Why badwater:

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.

Other Exp.:



I would prbably publish an article about the experiences made at the race,in a german newspaper.
