Running can hardly be more extreme than when the runner is Austrian Christian Schiester. From a chain-smoking 100 kg man, he has changed to a 100 km man and has long since been among the world’s best extreme runners. He won the Himalaya Run and regularly ran in numerous competitions across the world’s most inhospitable regions: Deserts, jungle or even the Antarctic.
At some point, Christian asked himself what will come after running. He discovered sailing and thus a completely new freedom for himself. Since 2016 he has been on the sailboat "El Toro" with his partner Daniela Baernthaler to sail around the world in seven stages. Running is still one of his passions - now mainly on the atolls and islands of the world's oceans.
