PETR NOVOTNY – THE CZECH BEAST
Petr is a Taipei based ultra trail runner with a passion for discovering seemingly inaccessible running spots throughout Taiwan. Prior to moving to Asia Petr developed his love of mountains and adventure in the northern region of the Czech Republic.
Petr excels at races that require endurance, climb-ability and speed. He recently took second place at the North Face 100 Taiwan, took first at Action Asia Maokong 18km race and 4th at the Vertical Mile Challenge in Lantau, Hong Kong.
Petr is also the leader of the Taiwan Beast Runners – an organization devoted to promoting trail running in Asia. You will often find him exploring the trails around Taipei with his wife-to-be Eva and their loyal four-legged beast Aqua.
