Martina Hausmann – GER – 50 (female)

Ever-present at long ultras around the world.  Martina Hausmann from Germany walks for very large parts of the longest races with the briefest of rest breaks – sleeping for only extremely short periods.

With so much time spent on the course, Martina notches up significant distances in multiday races as her average speed is often higher than those who run more.

Martina has completed a 1000 miles in Nanango in 2000.  Her time was 14:22:22:42.
