SASHA TARASOV – RUSSIAN DYNAMO
Sasha is originally from Siberia, Russia and he loves all things wild and free. He is known for sometimes running a marathon to get to the start of a marathon.
Sasha often podiums on races of extreme distance in Taiwan and complains that they are usually too short and too well marked. He finished 3rd in the North Face 100 Taiwan 2014. His other favorite races include the Climbathon in Kinabalu (here’s the story about it http://runforsight.blogspot.tw/) and Charming Trail an event during which Sasha took over 300 photos while passing by tiring runners.
Sasha is famous in Taipei for promoting trail running and introducing countless innocent souls to the thrill of seeking out the limits of the human body. When he is not running, you can find Sasha lecturing about nuclear physics at National Taiwan University.
