42 km and 195 metres to conquer Valencia!


On 3 December 2023 he will conquer Valencia for us!

The number 17520 represents Raphael’s bib number, allowing us to follow him on his mission.

On this occasion we would particularly like to thank Raffaele for two reasons that make us proud to have him in our team.

Raffaele has accustomed us to historic athletic feats. Beyond his achievements as an athlete, he is a medical oncologist dedicating his life to assisting hundreds of cancer patients with incredible empathy and professionalism.

Strongers owe a lot to Raffaele. Despite his demanding professional commitments that keep him occupied for hours, he consistently carves out time to train and prepare for our challenges.

Indeed, running a marathon is not just a physical challenge, but an emotional and mental journey, a journey full of hard work, sacrifice and moments of sheer determination, which Raffaele does not lack!

Support Raffaele in this challenge!
