Directly from Dmitry's Pen:

I started to run in July 2015, while living in Vaxjo (Sweden). In September 2015 I was running 20 km every day and knew from one runner about Vaxjo marathon.
I ran that marathon and joined to the running club. I ran my first ultramarathon 12 hour race, Personliga Rekordens Tavling, in Vaxjo with a  result of 110 km and the 4th place.

My second ultramarathon was Rada Ultra 6 hours race in Lidkoping. I ran 67 km there and was at the 3rd place. My third ultramarathon was Ultrafestival 2016 in July 2016 in Skovde. There I ran 204 km during a 24 hour race and was at the 4th place.

In 2016, I returned to Russia and continue to run but did not participate in any races. In the end of October, 2017 I came to Johannesburg, and started to run with Kudus running club since January, 2018.

My goal at the coming race is to run as far as possible and to understand what I learn about running during the previous two years.
