SIGHTRUNNING / Living in Madrid

Robert Nieuwland is the founder of MadridOutdoorSports. Currently, apart from being father of two and entrepreneur, he has been specializing in trail/mountain running. Although: ​has more of an extreme sports and mountain sports background (climbing, mountaineering, paragliding, skydiving, mountain biking) than purely athletic.

But in recent years he has been combining these activities as much as possible with trail running and ​even decided to start MadridOutdoorSports in order to professionally canalize his new passion for running through the mountains.

He is also active as a freelance journalist, which is what he studied when still living in Holland, before moving to Madrid, in September 2005.

As an athlete, he is a proud member of the Dutch National (Ultra) Trail Running Team, the Madrid State Team and is extremely thankful to count on the support of Caser Seguros and Salomon.
