I live and grew up in Switzerland and am 31 years to my lovely wife and a proud father of two adult daughters. As a ultra runner for many years, the MDS was always one of my very dreams. I expect being with a dedicated group of passionate runners for more than a week to be a once in my life experience in a fantastic landscape. The luxury of unattainability is one of the highest goods in today's volatile and dynamic business world and I'm sure that the time at the MDS will also give me a lot of time to find to myself. I also expect to have a lot of time to share and exchange life experiences with fellow runners and that this will make my MDS participation a truly unforgettable and memorable event
