Gérard est un vrai globe-trotter. Il a couru sur les cinq continents plus de cinquante courses. Il serait trop long de donner ses participations, nous pouvons citer la Badwater(2), le Marathon des Sables(5), le Yukon Arctic Ultra, l'Annapurna Mandala Trail, le Spartathlon, le Jungle Marathon, le Diagonale des Fous(3) et bien sûr le Kalahari Extreme Marathon(2). Le mieux est de voir son site-web: www.gverdenet.com Dans ses différents périples, il souhaite rencontrer différents peuples, différentes cultures et découvrir les plus beaux paysages de la planète.
Franz Brunner nahm sechs mal am Marathon des Sables teil, 2005 beendete er (allerdings als letzter) den Kalahari Augrabies Extreme Marathon. Daneben nahm einige Male am Jungfrau Marathon teil, auch der Swiss Alpine Marathon und viele andere Läufe in der Schweiz beendete er erfolgreich. Neben diesen Läufen hat er auch an City Marathons wie Berlin, New York oder Köln teilgenommen. Er lebt in der Region von Zürich. Da er pensioniert ist, hat er genügend Zeit um mit anderen Läufern zu diskutieren, wo und wie es sich lohnt zu laufen. Der Augrabies ist sein bevorzugter Lauf - Gastfreundschaft, Landschaft und vor allem der Lauf selbst sind ganz speziell.

I have participated in many self-sufficiency desert races (hot and cold). Being involved with KAEM, I will be able to give advice to trail runners in Italy who are interested in training for this race and help them get through it without any worries and more smiles. www.akkawastage.info
