Marc Roig Tio

Marc Roig Tio, a son of a marathon runner and a physiotherapist by training is among the best Marathon runners in Spain in recent years as demonstrated by his recent achievements. In 2011 Barcelona Marathon, Marc finished the race at 2h 18'm and he was among the first none African runners to finish the race. In August this year, he finished third in the year 2013 edition of the Helsinki Marathon. Furthermore, he is a multidisciplinary sport man who achieved successful results in various competitions.

Marc is “different” not as such in his way of ruining and training but in his way of understanding life and confronting challenges. For instance some years ago he decided to go and train with the best athletes in Eldoret, Kenya to improve his performance without prior knowledge about the area and the culture. All these qualifies Marc as a perfect Ambassador for Run in Africa´s "High Altitude Training”. He will be the first Spanish athlete realize a high altitude training in Ethiopia with Gebregziabher Gebremariam to bring down his marathon register to 2h 15m in the next edition of the Stockholm Marathon .

For run in Africa, Marc is a Kenyan from St. Pol ( his home town ), and he is our first ambassador for high altitude training and we are confident about his professionality in developing and promoting it.
