Diana Amza – the Manager of S24H Ultra Running Race – also likes ultra-running herself and she has already covered ultra-marathons of 53 km, 61 km and 100 km.
The idea of organizing the S24H race originated in the will to offer all runners an opportunity to surpass their current limits and to discover the lessons offered by long distance running which can also be applied into daily life: to see beyond your present limitations, to trust your body, to consolidate your mental abilities, to successfully fulfill a task despite your physical and mental fatigue, to increase your discipline and perseverance, to learn how to feel comfortable in uncomfortable situations, to achieve the certainty that you can overcome any obstacle that crosses your path.
