if not now, then when?
The idea of gax formed during a race in the Czech Republic in 2005. It was night (the second one during the race) and I wanted more running, more trail and more nature. Once home I started to develop the idea of organizing the first 100 mile trail run in Northern Europe.
I wanted it grand and great, for the first race six participants showed up for a ride of a lifetime ... but eventually the race grew and to answer the question How far can one run I uppped the ante a notch. I believed that 246 km was the absolute maximum - it is not.
The gax ultramarathons are based on adventure and trail, nature and self support - back to basic.
