He’s taken part in “running expeditions” through Tibet, Nepal, Morocco, Mexico, Costa Rica and India, with the intention of covering old trekking routes and pilgrim routes on the run. His original idea of setting up itineraries catering for runners is best shown in this guide .

Mauro "Geko" Santoni, born in Trieste, is a freelance journalist. After starting as an amateur soccer player, he ends up becoming a runner. He gets to know tracks and roads, testing his tendons with marathons and later discovering the Karst paths (Circolo Lloyd Adriatico, G.S. Valrosandra, Cai-Cim-Sag). He’s taken part in international running expeditions in order to explore the mountains of Nepal, India, Costa Rica, Bosnia and Montenegro.
An active promoter of sports voluntarism (Acli, C.S.I.), he is an instructor as well as a referee (F.I.G. Handball). From 1990 onward he counts as one of the reliable voices in local sports journalism, working in radio ("Trieste Radio Express", "Nuova Radio Sound", "Radioattività", "www.cittadiniradio.it"), television ("Telequattro") and with the press ("Il Piccolo", "Corriere dello Sport-Stadio", "TriesteSport", "CitySport").
