Michael Knoche (GER)

Running since: 2012

First race ever: München Marathon (2010), 3:48

Why did you start running: In 2010 my uncle, a runner, asked me if i wanted to run a marathon with him and i said yes. This was my first contact with this wonderful sport. But then it took antoher two years until i fully committed myself to running. Since then it has been an integral part of my life and i love it.

Your best race ever: Südthüringen Trail (2017) Mozart100 (2018) SaintéLyon (2019)

Favorite race event: I don’t really have any favourite races. I like fast 10k’s as well as (half) marathons and (ultra) trails.

The good: It helps clear your mind and stay healthy. Sometimes it can change your life.

The bad: For me sometimes stomach problems during ultras. And of course injuries.

The ugly: The inner voice that asks you why you are doing all this (sometimes during lows in a race).

Your favorite Willpower item: RUN TILL DEATH Hoodie

Top5 Running Songs: I don‘t hear any music while running but this is my alltime top5:

  • Maroon - Stillborn
  • Terror - Overcome
  • Heaven Shall Burn - The weapon they fear
  • Have Heart - Armed with a mind
  • Champion - Promises Kept

Favorite Pre-Race meal: Bread with raspberry jam and a cup of tea

Favorite Post-Race meal: Pizza, Salad, Soda water, Cola Running

Mantra/ favorite quote: Be yourself, do what you like and run!
