RUNNING

FRANCE

 In high school, I was running cross country races and in track & field. One summer, I decided to try some other races in the mountains because I lived in a ski resort, for distances between 10 and 25 km. I really enjoyed it and became French Champion U20, so I ran for the French team in the European and World Mountain running Championship. Then I became the French Champion in Trail Running U23. Gradually, I’ve increased the distances and now my best distances are between 60 and 80 km.
