When he’s not hiking, swimming, or biking in beautiful Redding, Dr. Garret Stand engages in physical fitness abroad. This late summer, Dr. Strand took on two challenging European trails: The Madrisa Trail in Switzerland and The Dolomiti di Brenta Trail in Italy.
The Madrisa Trail is in the Switzerland Alps. It is 24km (14.9 miles) and has an 800M+ elevation gain. On the trails, runners can see nature, wildlife, and a waterfall. The trail is rated as difficult.
The Dolomiti di Brenta Trail is in the Italian Alps. It is 64km (39.8 miles) and has a 4200M+ elevation gain. Competitors have 16 hours to finish the difficult trail.
Dr. Strand is a reconstructive foot and ankle surgeon at Shasta Orthopaedics. He is also the 2020-2021 participant of Shasta Orthopaedics’ Northern California Reconstructive Foot and Ankle Fellowship.
