Hello fellow runners! It's Markus and Christian.
Christian was infected with the runners' virus in his childhood. His father was an eager runner himself. After a break with "no sports" ✌️, he turned his passion into his career by becoming a semi-professional marathon runner. He participated at the Rio 2016 Summer Olympics, 1x at the World Athletics Championships, 3x at the European Athletics Championships, and - last but not least - finished the Dragon's Back Race 2019 successfully (i.e. with no permanent damage).
Likewise, Markus was infected with the runners' virus in his childhood, as his father too was a devout runner himself. More than 30 years ago, Markus turned his passion into his career and founded a travel agency in Zürich (Switzerland) - specialised in offering trips to road races all over the world (including the wold marathon majors) and organising/guiding running camps. He gained more than 30 years of expertise in providing running experiences to other runners - and finshed countless marathons around the world (including 3x the Comrades Marathon - 89 km).
In 2016, Markus and Christian met for the first time. Quickly, they joined forces and since then, Christian has been a regular guest speaker at Markus's seminars for marathon preparation.
On a summer hike in 2020, they discussed their ideas of a "marketplace for runs" for the first time. Since then, they have been haunted by that idea. A few months and countless sleepless nights later, the first prototype went live and their startup was formally started up.
