Earlier this year I posted about the #getagrip campaign of INOV8. You could win a trip to Keswick in the UK. I’m pleased to let you know that I’m one of the winners. I’m invited to come by for a weekend of trailrunning.
We zitten alweer een week in 2017 of noem het tweeduizendzeventien en ja ook ik maak mijn lijstje voor 2017 bekend. Ik doe niet aan voornemens want dan zeg je eigenlijk dat alles het jaar er voor minder goed was. Maar ik zet wel ideeën en plannen alvast op de kalender. Na wat heen en weer schuiven is dit de voorlopige lijst.
A few weeks ago I talked about the Asics running – Beat the sun campaign and I’m now pleased to tell you that I’m a Semi-Finalist!
There are now 24 semi-finalist from Europe and you can
vote on them vote on me every day till the 20th of may. After that we have a few days of waiting before we know if I’m a finalist and we would know if I’m going to Chamonix – France. Continue reading Asics Running | Beat The Sun 2016 Semi Finalist – Introduction
The upcoming weekend we are off to Belgium for some trailrunning training.

Every year at the longest day of the year Asics is organising a relay race around the Mt blanc massif. The Asics Beat the sun race. The idea is that eight teams run against nature’s clock. They start in Chamonix and have just 15 hours, 41 minutes and 35 seconds to cover the 150km route. Every selected runner must do two relay sessions between 3k-19km across a varied terrain while crossing France, Switzerland and Italy on one day.
A few weeks ago I saw the campaign for the 2016 event. So I put my name in the sweepstake and wrote my motivation and send some pictures. A few weeks later I’ve received a message that I’m selected to be one of the last 50 candidates. Which means that I’m a semi-finalist. After this 24 people will be selected by a selection round of public vote and an expert judging panel. Continue reading Asics Beat the Sun run around the Mt Blanc
