A real mountain lover, 23-year-old Florient Sollima is above all a rather unusual long-distance runner.
He likes to think outside the box and has been hiking for several years during his own personal challenges.
Here are some examples:
- 2014: crossed the Alps. 1,022km and 73,000m of climbs in 22 days
- 2015: solo crossing of the Savoie department. 222km and 13,418m of elevation in 49h57
- 2016: 4 large Alpine lakes in 5 totally different stages (road, trail, aerial stage) 315km and 12,700m of elevation.
- 2017: Route of 255km and 12,000m of climbs between Alps and Jura in 49h30 in total self-sufficiency. (see the video here)
Florient has recently discovered Canicross and is passionate about it. His dogs Ina (a female German Braque) and Tsia (Alaskan husky) just can't wait to run!
