Runs fast, makes others fast

This attitude describes the way he trains himself and his clients. If you don’t challenge yourself, “you can’t really seize the challenge of a particular long run with all of its trials and tribulations.” As professional coach Michael prepares his clients for optional ultraruns or semi-marathons. The former soldier faces himself the challenge of three big runs in 2017. After his first participation in the Transvulcania last year, a finish time under 8 hours is the goal in 2017. Last year he experienced his first run of fifteen hours in the extremely difficult Ultra Pirineu in Spain. This run pushed the athlete to his limits and he is now motivated to finish the Eiger Ultra Trail. Additionally, Michael wants to achieve a good positioning in the Transalpine Run in September.
