RUN, FLO, RUN!
Florian “Flow” Neuschwander lives and breathes the runner’s flow. He’s only 167 cm tall, but he shouldn’t be underestimated. He’s multi-talented, always ready with a smile and a cheeky one-liner. Flo loves to dash into adventures and to master new challenges. He runs marathons all across the world, setting one course record after the other as he goes, but there’s even more to Flo. In 2015, he won the Wings for Life World Run in Germany and acquired national renown. He’s had so much success in extreme races under extreme circumstances: 9th at the 100 km World Cup in Windschoten, 2nd at the Ultra Trail World Cup with a distance of 75 km, 1st at the Transrockies Run in Colorado with a distance of 193 km and 6,000 meter ascent. However, he doesn’t run alone. Running is his passion and he loves to share it with his community. Florian has a broad presence on social networks and loves to chat at running groups or at his work place, a runner’s shop in Frankfurt. He’s always true to his motto “Run with the Flow,” and is a man full of ambition which is obvious when he quotes his role model Steve Prefontaine:
To give anything less than your best is to sacrifice the gift
