Daniel “Dani” Jung is a real nature lover. He runs, climbs, hikes and cycles – in fact he’ll do anything needed to be active in the fresh air. So it’s no wonder that the trained electrician has turned his hobby into a profession and spends a lot of time as a bike and trail guide. He finds his best running courses in his home region South Tyrol, around the peaks of the Dolomites, a UNESCO world heritage site. In this historic, almost pristine environment Daniel trains and enjoys the wonders of nature. He also participates in competitions here, such as the Dolomiti Extreme, in which he easily came in first in 2016. His top three placings in the past GORE-TEX® Transalpine Runs and various course records, such as the SciaccheTrail Cinque Terre 2016, have secured him international renown. Dani is well on his way to the top of the trail runner elite, yet he remains very down-to-earth. With a big smile, high spirits and a charming Southern Tyrolean dialect, he runs freely according to the motto:
