In the depths of winter, Shamita Achenbach-Konig set out to run from her home in Vienna all the way to her birthplace of Bregenz, in the very west of Austria. This 640km journey took her a total of 7 days which involved being out on the road for up to 16 hours of the day.
Shamita had to contend with 4,000m of ascent and descent, plus the harsh weather of an Austrian winter.
Shamita is a professional cellist by profession, but has been running ultra-distance races with the Sri Chinmoy Marathon Team for over 25 years.
