What is normal? That’s what Aramis has asked himself since childhood. Whatever it is, it has nothing to do with him. Born in Croatian and raised in Italy, the familyman lives today in Sweden. And it was there that he discovered his love for running. Not too many years ago he weighed more than 100 kilos (220 pounds). A crucial experience with his son sparked him to do something about it. “My first running experience was horrible,” he says. He couldn’t run more than two kilometers at a snail’s pace at a time. Indeed, he increased that, and step by step, kilometer by kilometer, he ran head on into his own personal Mountopia.
Today Aramis is a solid ultrarunner with a long resume of race experience. Ultra Trail Mont Blanc (UTMB) in 2017 covering 170 kilometers and 10,000 meters of vert, “100 miles from Istria” in every year from 2015 to 2018, Aktivitus Trail Race with 161 kilometers, and much more.
Now, you have met the winners of the fourth Mountopia Challenge in Summer 2018. So what can they expect during 3 Peaks -- 3 Days? Will they work together as a group? We are excited to climb Grossglockner, Ortler and Zuspitze in Speed Style. Stay tuned. Starting Sept. 13, 2018, we will cover it live on our Social Media channels. #speedup
