Running has been his life-long passion. Born in Switzerland, Pat was a cross country champion and track runner in Europe before moving to Brisbane, Australia in 2007.
Success followed him Down Under with a victory at the prestigious Zatopek 3000m Steeplechase in Melbourne in 2008.
After winning two half marathons, Pat decided to make the transition from track to marathon in 2011 and ran the Gold Coast Marathon in a debut time of 2:23. The same year he also won the Australian Mountain Running Championships and become a dual-citizen of Switzerland and Australia.
In 2012, Pat finished third in the Osaka Marathon in Japan and in April 2013 finished ninth in the Zurich Marathon in 2:22. That time was enough to place him third in the Swiss Championships and land him a spot in the Swiss National team ‘Swiss Starters 2014’.
P.A.T.42.2 RUNNING is Pat's new business and fan club, helping to support him in his campaign to run in the European Athletics Championships 2014 and the Olympic Games 2016.
