About Me

Hello, my name is Andréa! I'm an amateur triathlete, ultra-marathoner, and a university professor of tourism. It was by training in the streets of Paris during my time off the PhD dissertation that I had the idea of ​​combining my two passions. I thus founded RunRun Tours in 2016 with my partner Hamidou, an expert in physical training. We’re "serious" lovers of running, having participated in several competitions in France and abroad. To us, running is synonymous with sharing!

Motivation

Our mission is to make possible to all those like us, who cannot do without the pleasure of running, to keep training without having to worry about finding the right route and getting lost. While being entertained with lots of stories about the famous sights and hidden gems of Paris!

My Running Experience

I've been running on a regular basis for almost two decades, although at the beginning it was only me in my treadmill. In the last decade, I've been more involved in long-distance runnings, being the marathon distance my personal favorite. I qualified both to the Boston and to the New York City marathons and took part in the two races in 2019. I love to challenge myself with new experiences and endurance challenges, so I've been moving towards ultramarathons and long-distance triathlons. My second greatest passion in terms of sports is long-distance, open water swimming. My partner Hamidou is an expert in physical training and has comparatively recently adopted running (in 2013). He immediately rocked it! People love running with him, and he's taken part in several marathons worldwide (Berlin, New York, Paris), and in some ultramarathon competitions with me.
