HISTORY
Ultramarathon runner myself, since 2005 I have run 176 races over 42 km, including 53 ultramarathons and 44 marathons. I practice the profession of massage therapist. Passionate about endurance sports, I decided to share my passion by organizing the Ultratour du Léman. I have been part of the ultra family for several years and I would like her to come and settle in our Lake Geneva region to anchor her ethics and her values. Running is a solitary sport, but one that can become soliDaire is the Ultra… and one day in 2006… with my friends Claude Baumann and Yannick Zimmermann, we set off to try a Double Tour of Lake Geneva, or 343 km, for the benefit of the Théodora Foundation. Since, it had been a project in the deepest area of my mind…
Every day, the edge of the Lake is the playground of many runners, and many races, from 4km to marathons, are organized. From now on, we must also count on the Ultratour du Léman which will be in 2018 at its 6th edition!
