One of the longest multiday running events ever hosted, the Trans-Europe footrace was organised by Ingo Schultze in 2003 and ran from Lisbon to Moscow in 64 stages and covered approximately 5100 km. Out of 49 starters, there were 21 finishers with Mariko Sakamoto the only woman to finish. The event was won by Robert Wimmer from Germany.
A new Trans-Europe is being planned for 2009 starting in Italy and finishing in Northern Scandinavia. Again this will be a 64 day stage race however the total distance will be around 4-4500 km.
