Think your company has tough colleagues? We´ve got you beat! Atis Klavis, our Head of Engineering is the toughest guy my a mile. By several miles in fact… Last week he completed the insane Werewolf Marathon in Latvia, a 42km race with a 2000m(!!!) ascent. It has been described as one of the most difficult marathons in Europe. Some of the steepest parts of the trail are just ridiculous. Atis came in at a respectable 21st place out of 88 participants and completed in a little over 6 hours.

“I feel more at home on the longer distances” says Atis. “I used this race more as a warmup to my race in two weeks, where I´ll run 107km for the Ultra-Asphalt marathon going from Riga to Valmiera. But even that is not the highlight for this years running season. I am most excited about participating in the Ultra trail du MontBlanc in August. Its only 56km, but its has 3500m ascent, so it will be a tough race. My focus now is just sticking to my training plan, being disciplined on my dietary intake, and avoid injury so I can make sure I have a good season”.

Needless to say we are immensely impressed by Atis´ endurance, and his incredible discipline. Being able to juggle an intensive competitive training program, a family and his career is, in lack of better words, awesome! We are proud to have you on the team Atis, but none of us would want to run a hundred miles in your shoes…
