Autumn 23 – Ultra runner Simen Holvik

Eventually, quite a few people know about Simen Holvik and his racing history. 2023 started with 2nd place in the ultra race "Brazil 135 Ultramarathona". He describes another particularly strong performance the same summer during the "Badwater 135" (considered the world's toughest road ultra race) as follows: "The race in Death Valley on July 4 was historic. Not only did I become the first Norwegian to complete this historic race - but I also came in 1st place among the men. It was a special experience running almost 220 kilometers in up to 50 degrees. My time was the 4th best time ever, beating the time of the legend Scott Jurek."

This weekend, he will embark on a new world record attempt in Arizona. This time a 48-hour race - see articles below. We asked Simen for a summary of the highlights of the fall.
