Lars-Christian Simonsen


In 2016 I started running in an attempt to improve my physical and mental well-being. While grieving the loss of my daughter back in 2017, I found that running helped me cope with the sorrow. The sorrow never left, so I still run.

I started Run161 in the fall of 2017 because I wanted a place to share my passion. The activity, the sport, and the community around running helped me when I needed it the most. I wanted to pay it forward.

Everything on offer here at Run161 is my attempt to pay it forward. I do it because I want to share the magic of running. I do it to pay it forward.
