Category Archives: Emigrantrailers around the world

This category is dedicated to runners who live experiences similar to mine, being an emigrant (living in a country other than their country of origin) and being a trailer: trail-running lovers or simply motivators of a more outdoor life and at same time spokesperson, driving force, “trailer”, of a passion for exploration or for social projects/activities!

It is absolutely irrelevant if the emigrantrailer is an excellent, good or mediocre athlete! The thing that matters is the spirit with which they live this condition as emigrantrailer. Therefore, anybody with these characteristics will have the opportunity to tell us about their experiences.

The aim is to convey useful information both to beginners and experienced trail-runners and to visitors of the places which will be part of the chats.

To do so, I will make few questions, based on the word “TRAIL” and the basic idea is to have a new emigrantrailer to know more or less every week.

Obviously my initial idea was to meet other “Emigrantrailers” in person. Unfortunately, due to the Covid-19 I had to fall back on distant chats! :-)

I hope you will enjoy this idea!
