My journey

My name is Mickael BERTHON


My passion for running is often off the beaten track, I like races and atypical challenges. I like to go where I can be a pioneer, create, get out of my comfort zone.

My favorite distances often exceed the famous 100 miles and I'm more motivated to go on an adventure where I have to manage 2/3 nights without sleeping rather than a classic race where all the comfort is available for the runner.

I have already lived many adventures that allowed me to push my limits and get to know myself better, but the one I am about to experience is unique, setting a record on such a long crossing requires action way before putting the first foot on the mythical course that I have decided to tread. And it is with you who read these few lines that I have decided to share it!

I am a lover of what mother nature has put in our way and my feet are for me, the most beautiful way to build this love.
