They both have been in love with Morocco since so many years ago, after years of travelling and running the country they finally felt ready to offer the destination too. Together with Abdu, another ex-professional runner and one of the best guides from the country now.
3 countries 3 adventures, each of them different.
We believe you can not show a place to others if you’re not local, and be a local means that you should be able to say “this is my kids school” or… “say hello to my grandma”.
We believe running is the most efficient way of transportation to get to know a place.
We believe that those places our legs take us to are more than beautiful sceneries, those places are mainly the people inhabiting them, their food, their culture, their music.
This is why we only run in Costa Rica, Catalonia (Spain) and Morocco because we’re local in those places because our trips hold the essence of our philosophy and let the ones joining us be travellers instead of tourists.
That’s the difference between us and other companies.
We travel by running. We do not care about speed because we do want to enjoy the journey. We use running as a mean of transportation to let runners discover a place deeply like no other person can, sleeping every day in a new place.
Also know as the mountain goat, is former professional triathlete who has turned his passion for running into his job, in 2011 we founded Running Costa Brava and later Run The World Adventures in an effort to take running back to it’s origins, as he would say turn it back into a mean of transportation.
Cristina is the brain behind the scenes, she’s the one making sure we got a place to sleep and meal to eat after our runs.
She also assists the group or runs as another guide. From the very beginning you show interest for any of our running adventures, she will personally be the one talking with you by email, arranging your dates, answering all your questions and preparing your adventure until the day you arrive.
