2020 was a special and difficult year for everybody. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic (COVID-19 (Corona Virus) | EmigranTrailer), many of the planned races & competitions were cancelled. Moreover, the different rules between countries did not allow to travel as much as in the past years.
As a natural consequence, at end of the year, I completed three official “normal” races:
- Rodgau Ultramarathon (Ultra Running in Germany: Rodgau 50km, Hessen | EmigranTrailer)
- SONUT Ultra Trail (SoNUT 2020: 62 km | EmigranTrailer)
In addition, I also took part and finished another race, organized in a “virtual” mode, in order to respect the COVID-19 rules:
- Mainzer Maaraue Marathon (Mainzer Maaraue Marathon 2020 | EmigranTrailer)
Of course, the uncertainty about the rules and the evolution of the pandemic severely impacted also the training sessions. Specifically, I decided to focus on day-by-day spontaneous running, without targeting any race or competition. This gave me the opportunity to create specific running projects to test myself and explore as much as possible the areas along the river Rhein and the Taunus in Germany:
- Running the complete Rheinsteig in 5 stages (Rheinsteig with Peppa Pig in five stages | EmigranTrailer)
- Running in May every day at least 15 km (Running every day 15 km for one month | EmigranTrailer)
