Trailrunner Emerson Trujillo Flores to compete in Norway next month

E merson Trujillo Flores is currently preparing in the area of Uranchacra, the mountains of the Cordillera Blanca and in the Puchka valley for the Wings for Life World Run in Stavanger, Rogaland. The trail run will be on the 7th of next month and Emerson said on local television to hope that the municipality of Huari can help him out with his travel expenses.

The trailrunner said that due to his busy schedule, it´s sometimes difficult to find sponsors. Despite representing Peru, Emerson counts with only a few sponsors, but said to be happy with the help of the North Face brand.

Last year, Emerson won the Wings for Life World Run in Breda in the Netherlands and ended up fourth in Spain´s Ultra Pirineu 2016 Ultra 110 km mountain run. He was the first Peruvian ever reaching the top 5. However, during the Endurance Challenge in California, United States last year, there was not much to celebrate. The man from Uranchacra ended up in 10th spot and partly injured. After a decent rest and spending time with his family, Emerson has started training again and hope to get a good result in Scandinavia.

Emerson repeated that he hopes to inspire some of the youngsters of his native area. ¨Sport is education and running is a very easy sport. You can even make it to the Olympics if you´re good. Why not represent the Huari province? My objective is to participate in the Trail World Championships that are being held in Europe. I had an invitation for this year´s championship but due to the lack of financial backing, I had to withdraw. Later this year I hope to participate in France. Training is very important and although running is a cheap sport, travel expenses have to be paid

The trail run in Norway will be organized by Red Bull Norway AS and the Stavanger weather forecast predicts 20% rain, a temperature of 9 degrees Celsius with an humidity of 68%. This year´s catcher car will be driven by the Norwegian World Cup alpine ski racer and Olympic medalist Henrik Kristoffersen.
