Fabian was known as the “Keniata de Canillejas”. Running has always been his passion. That’s why in 2008 he decided to retire from athletics to focus on the mountain. Since then he has been proclaimed European mountain medalist in the mountain championship for veterans.

He is currently the captain of the EITB program call End of the World Conquistador. From this perspective we will show elements necessary to improve leadership and competitiveness. Sports values applicable in many areas of life.
Begoña Beristain is an unstoppable woman. His passion for running has led her to publish his first book “You too can be runner” and this Saturday in cellar will load us with dynamism transmitting that: if you can dream it, you can do it.
