Welcome back Caroline!

Welcome back Caroline!

@SIISophia celebrates the return of Caroline Peillon. Caroline participated in the Spartan Race World Championships on October 1st in the spectacular venue of Lake Tahoe (between California and Nevada). Six days after the race, she tells us how it went.

A perilous race

Cold, high altitudes, ice water, wind, obstacles… Those were the challenges Caroline had to overcome in order to finish the 23 km race. She finished in a little over five hours, an excellent result for a first attempt at one of the most difficult courses in the world. The competition was tough, and during the race, she faced off against veteran participants. Mental toughness, physical preparation, and equipment seemed to be the three biggest keys to finishing the race.

An unforgettable experience

Participating in an event like the Spartan Race is all about the people you meet. French athletes were well represented, making up 10% of the race's participants. Caroline has no regrets. She found the courage to rise to this extraordinary challenge and is already planning on participating in the next edition of the race.

SII shares Caroline's values and is proud to support her in her future athletic endeavors. Read her entire story on Facebook by clicking here
