Anne-Marie Flammersfeld

You have been running since 2009, do you have a favourite training location?
Trairunning in Engadin (St. Moritz), Switzerland// Skitouring, Mountainbiking, Mountaineering

Anne-Marie, who or what inspires you?
I´m inspired by the old sailors who went out on the oceans with their boats and had no idea what or who they will meet.

What is your passion in life?
My passion in life is trailrunning. It is an amazing feeling to run up and down in the mountains, to find new trails or to discover new areas by feet only.

If you had to pick two runners, dead or alive, to go run with. Who would they be and where would you go?
Basti Haag, a truly friend of mine and great ski mountaineering Pro. He died in an avalanche in 2014. Where to go? Everywhere where you find nice, long and steep trails and mountains: “It`s always worth it to climb a mountain!”.

Which is the best city on earth and why?
Moritz in Switzerland. It`s a real playground for many different kind of sports!

Do you have your own way of life? What do you want to achieve next?
You don`t know for what you are capable for or what you can achieve as long as you don`t try. And: “Crisis come and crisis go!”

What are your goals for 2018? What do you want to achieve next?
Patagonia Expedition Race in Chile: a non-stop expedition race in a team of 4 with running, navigation, kayaking and biking in the hidden land of Patagnia. Bottom Up Climbs 7 Volcanic Summits: to continue my challenge to climb to highest volcano of each continent. That means I start at the bottom/shore of a country and finish at the top of the highest volcano. All by fair means. In 2018 it will be the Ojos del Salados in Chile, a 6985 meters peak.

What do you think about SWOX?
Swox is a great sunscreen which gives you protection where you need it. It gives you a good feeling to enjoy all kinds of outdoor sports!
