In February we wrote about our participation with a team composed by the ultrarunner Jenn Shelton and our trailrunning guide Andreas Irsara at the 10th edition of the Gore-Tex Transalpine run.
We knew that this was a really strong team that could be able to demonstrate his value on the field. It came out out even better by finishing at the 3rd stage on the 2nd place and at the 5th stage on the 1st place.
All participants are real STARS, from the first to the last ones and our team GORE-TEX®-Holimites.com ended the 8 stage race in 7th position.
Only 3 weeks before Jenn tried again to beat the John Muir Trail record together with Krissy Moehl. She fighted over the 211 miles in 4 days and hours. You may find some more information of the past JMT attempts by Jenn on the following link and the blog post about this
year attempt by Krissy Moehl at this link.
All this didn’t stop Jenn to join Andreas on the Transalpine Run and afterwards to join our last trail running group of the season running the best parts of the Dolomites Alta Via #1 and #2 trail with our guests.
A huge THANK YOU to Jenn and Andreas for a week plenty of emotions … and browser refreshing to check how the race was going on!
