With Björn, we welcome another member to TeamHI26 – glad to have you on board!

Björn is the holder of the Six Star Finisher Medal and a member of the Berlin Marathon’s Jubilee Club.

Six Star Finishers are marathon runners who have successfully completed all six World Marathon Majors (Boston, London, New York, Berlin, Chicago, Tokyo).

In 2011, Björn quit smoking and wanted to do something for his health. This led to a passion for running, especially for the marathon. In his sport, Björn always sets clear and sometimes ambitious goals. For him, it is not primarily important whether the result is positive or negative. The crucial aspect is to face the challenge.

Dear Denise, dear Judith!

Not just dreaming, but turning your dreams into reality – that’s your motto.

You not only set out to gather new experiences and discover fascinating cultures but also found the courage to step out of your everyday comfort zone.

Your journey to Nepal and your goal of reaching the Mount Everest Basecamp reflect your desire to challenge yourselves and test the limits of your bodies.

You are on the path to a unique and enriching experience!
