I have previously finished 1 full Ironman and 5 marathons. So this will be my first ultrarace. Really looking forward to crossing the finish line in Panevezys.


My name is Gertis Aru. I am 27 years old. I was born in small town Viljandi, Estonia. Last three years I’ve been living in the capital of Estonia, Tallinn. I work at the biggest Estonian own capital bank, LHV Bank as an IT specialist. My companions/team are my girl, her friend and my smaller brother

From all of the races you have done,which was the hardest and the most satisfying?The most hardest and satisfying race must have been my first and only Ironman race where despite some pain I managed to conquer the course. My smaller brother ran with me for a part of that race.

What made my come to Panevezys? I really wanted something more challenging than an Ironman. For 2 years I tried my luck at the Norseman enrollment, but it wasn’t meant to be. So that made me look elsewhere. I had already set my sights on Panevezys last year and this year it suited for me, so here I am.

The time for me comes second. Firstly, I want to finish that race.
