Anne-Marie Flammersfeld – how a simple idea helped her rise to
winning the Desert Grand Slam Title and going beyond your wildest imagination.
I´ve heard of Anne-Marie in a magazine article years ago.
She had just won the Grand Slam title and made it into the club of the first
German woman ever to finish all four Racing The Planet desert races within one
year. Not only that, she won every single race of the series without ever
having had an ultra marathon running experience before.
Talking to Anne-Marie felt like talking to a good friend.
Her warm-heartedness, humour and outgoing persona is infectious. In this
conversation, she talks about her background in ballsports and what set her
heart on fire for running. She goes deep into what triggers her to perform on
such a high level and what supports her self-belief in faith. If you think it´s
about sheer talent and physical training, Anne-Marie proves this wrong.
It was first during a trip in Argentina that she met a
Norwegian guy and the crazy idea to participate in the Racing The Planet series
was born. Anne-Marie never just simply wants to run a race. With a clear goal
in mind, she´s tackled the most grueling mountain and trail races world wide
since 2012. She´s driven to discover new
places inside and outside of herself. Moving
in nature being an essential part in her life, Anne-Marie is tireless in her
pursuit to explore unknown territory.
She´s found a deep passion in her bottom-up project which
she talks about in-depth as well as her passion to make the world a better
place for children in need.
Anne-Marie isn´t purely an athlete. As a sports scientist
with her own coaching and training business in the high mountains of St.Moritz
in Switzerland, she´s committed to help others rise to be their best, to live
in the moment and making the most of life every day by trusting and following your
At almost 40, she´s nowhere near the end of her ultra
running career. If anything, she´s full of ideas and plans for the future,
feeling called to turn another simple idea into a bigger vision.
