Concurentul sustinut de catre noi, Florin Nastase este bucuros ca a reusit sa participe integral la aceasta cursa, sa ajunga la finish. Dupa un total de 1048 km parcursi, incluzand 412 km de alergare si 636 km de ciclism, Florin ne-a zambit fericit, in cea de a 11 a zi, cand a avut loc sfarsitul competitiei.

Cu o zi inaintea terminarii competitiei, Florin declara: “Daca aceasta cursa nu ar fi una cu valoare caritabila ar deveni imposibila, aici se alearga doar cu inima pentru alte inimi … nu este loc de arogante si orgolii precum la concursurile deja traditionale, aici se alearga pentru eroii necunoscuti ai fiecarei zile.”

Ne bucuram maxim ca a reusit sa se mobilizeze si sa termine aceasta cursa, incredibil de dificila…

Florin, Qipa Team te felicita pentru efortul depus si pentru implicarea de care ai dat dovada!!
