The 2021 Absurdistan Running Series (ARS)
The human body is not designed for our lifestyle. Like our ancestors, we’re born to run barefoot to be happy and healthy, boost our immune systems and ensure the survival of our species. And that’s crucial, since prevention is the free, safe and most effective solution to many diseases and pandemics, including obesity and COVID-19.
Moreover, aggressive prevention would not only save yearly tens of millions lives and a lot of money, but also significantly improve our quality of life and humanness, and drastically reduce global warming and the depletion of natural resources.

I call liberation marathons and liberation ultramarathons the 63 GPS documented non-official races I ran between the first two COVID-19 lockdowns in Absurdistan, aka France, in 2020. The races I did afterwards under the same circumstances in Absurdistan make up the Absurdistan Running Series (ARS): Absurdistan Marathons and Absurdistan Half Marathons (any run between 21.1 km and less than 42 km).
