For Jean-Paul running is freedom. He started running in parks in the city of Amsterdam quite some years ago and is competing for about 8 years. He sees running as the perfect medicine to put everything in place and come to ease after a busy day at work. He enjoys running on tracks to work on speed. Every now and then on streets, but what he likes best is running local trails in the dunes that never gets boring.
Fast forward about 15 years he runs wherever and whenever he can. Whether that is on streets, tarmac or trails. However, the latter is what he enjoys most lately and also introduced him to the world of endurance sports. Running fast half marathons had to make room for (ultra) trail events all over Europe with Transalpine Run being cherry on the cake.
When not logging kilometers in the dunes, he’s is as an advertising creative (with a preference for branding, brand activation, identity & type design) involved in trail run events and running brands. Enjoys eating plant based (junk) food and collecting records on vinyl.
