We are delighted to welcome Pierre Meslet to the Profeet team of ambassadors.
Pierre is a qualified osteopath, and we work with him closely at Profeet. He was also part of the medical team at the London 2012 Olympic Games.
We asked Pierre to tell us a little about himself:
I have been running for about 20 years now and have a half marathon PB of 1h17m and a marathon PB of 3h05m, but in the last three years I’ve been focusing on racing ultras.
In 2015, I ranked 52nd in the Ultra Trail World Tour after finishing 51st overall at the Vibram HK100 in 13h39m, 106th at The North Face 100 in Australia (12h56), and 75th at the Ultra Trail Mt Fuji (31h24).
In 2016 I am taking part at Race to the Stones in July and the Ultra Trail Cote Azur Mercantour (145km with 10000m vertical) in September.
Next year I’m planning three races: the Transgrancanaria HG, the Eiger Ultra Trail and the Ultra Trail du Mont Blanc. I’m hoping to finish in the top 50 in the Ultra Trail World Tour rankings.
I was a customer at Profeet before I became an ambassador and have found the staff professional and friendly. They genuinely know what they’re talking about when it comes to assessing and advising footwear for long distance runner.
They made me a pair of custom insoles that have made my runs even more enjoyable: it is like running with slippers. Even after a hard 35km session, my feet were totally pain free! I look forward to wearing them for the upcoming 100km Race To The Stones mid-July
