The World Championships in Innsbruck, Austria are already a few weeks back now, but shortly after I sat down with Marcel Höche who ran for Team Germany to chat about his experience of wearing the National Team jersey. We talk about the difference between a race of this caliber and makeup vs. UTMB and of course, his exciting racing plans for the remainder of the year.
In this episode of Singletrack we connect with multi-faceted athlete Marchel Höche of the Adidas Terrex team calling in from beautiful Garmisch-Partenkirchen, in the south of Germany. Marcel shares his FKT on the iconic and quite exposed Jubiläumsgrat on the Zugspitze. We chat about the diverse trail racing landscape in Europe and what it means to run as part of a larger trail running team. Finally as a cofounder of the German Skyrunning Federation Marcel shares some challenges and opportunities in getting the organization positioned in the outdoor nonprofit landscape of Germany.
