Stefano RUZZA

Country: Italy

Year of Birth: 1982

Speciality: Ultra Trail


Stefano was a young guy with a rockstyle life, but also a sport lover. In 2004 he began to run, discovering ultratrail in 2010 and then joining Trailrunning Team Vibram in 2013. His favorite races are those from 50 to 120 km. However, if he feels good, he is capable of great 100 miles as well. His dream race is Diagonale Des Fous, a complete trail mix with runnable and technical sections, tons of stairs, but his masterpiece was the 7th place at the UTMB 2018, which he wrote about in his book "Fallire e riuscire all'UTMB" (just in Italian version for the moment). He is a running and trailrunning coach from 2017, writing articles about it on Runner's World Italy.
