In this episode Thomas Reiss shares his experience as the international athlete manager of the epic and unique Snowman Race that just happened a couple of weeks ago in the Kingdom of Bhutan. This event was about so much more than racing. It’s goal was to bring people and cultures together to share the urgency to address climate change. Especially as it affects people living in the shadows of massive glaciers high in the mountain regions of our world.
For this special episode Thomas Reiss returns to Singletrack to share the story of his epic climb of Aconcagua, the highest mountain outside the Himalayas and one of the Seven Summits. What a perfect inspiration to chase mountains during Virtual VERT Challenge weekend.
This week Thomas Reiss joins Singletrack to share a glimpse into his epic journey from a small town in Germany to opening a design shop in Californian wine country. We talk about running Western States, hiking to Everest Basecamp, and punk music and great German food. Delicious.
