|Stefano upon arrival|
Beautiful walking adventure by Stefano Ruspantini 65km long and prepared only in six weeks with the Monotraining technique. The start was from Quirico d'Orcia (Siena), with the finishing line in Acquapendente (Viterbo). The event called Walking Francigena Ultramaraton took place on Saturday 8 October 2022 (yesterday), starting at 21.00, with a certain altitude difference and arriving at 9.00 on Sunday morning.
It was a great satisfaction for me to follow him at a distance with advice and tricks that he undertook with great determination ... Bravo Stefano!
PS. Although it was a non-competitive event, some 'adventurers' set off two hours before the start. If it weren't for this Stefano would have been the first to cross the finish line among the athletes starting at the correct time!
