Mein Name ist Janosch Kowalczyk, ich bin Ultraläufer mit Fokus auf Trails und die richtig langen Rennen. Ich möchte sehen wo das Limit ist und mich entschlossen den Traum vom Profi-Trailläufer Wirklichkeit werden zu lassen.
Trailrunning ist seit Dezember 2019 mein Alltag und Lebensmittelpunkt. Wie weit kann man laufen, wenn alles darauf ausgerichtet ist?
In den Bergen 100km zu laufen benötigt sehr viel Training, meistens sieben Tage die Woche. Neben den Trainingsstunden wird auf Ernährung geachtet, Rücksprache mit Coach und Physio gehalten und die nächsten Rennen und Abenteuer geplant.
Weil die Hügel um Stuttgart nicht immer ausreichen, findet viel des Trainings im Allgäu, Schwarzwald, auf der Alb statt oder überall wo die Hügel etwas höher sind.


For me trail running and running in general are the favored choice to handle situations, problems and feelings in everyday life. That is I use running to be (physically) tired in the evening and sit down for dinner with proper appetite. I brainstorm about current tasks in my personal projects and things I need to order in my mind.
I can run to get my head free and clock miles to get satisfied with myself and run very hard to test my limits and of course in racing get self confidence for all other aspects of life.



Without trail running I would probably do lots of other sports like cycling, climbing and also go to the gym and improve myself day in day out.

Ultra trail running teaches to harvest success by training hard and especially regularly. Consistency is the key to endure months of focused training.
On the other hand it includes the specialty of being in remote areas and earn spectacular views in the mountains to feed the soul.


I guess the most often I run in the morning before breakfast.
That is before 7am, sometimes also 5:30am…It took me some years to loose excuses, but I never had a problem to wake up early and now there are only a few days when cold, rain, tiredness win in the morning. It’s not that I am more disciplined now, it’s just more normal. Although I can’t run fast miles that early, running before work kills the risk that unexpected meetings or workload prevent training in the evening.
