EY Partner & Ultrarunner

Christoph Harreither

In addition to his career as an auditor, EY partner Christoph Harreither discovered his passion for the extreme after a stage run through the Alps in 2008. Since then, he has sought the challenge of extreme races around the world such as the Trail du Mont-Blanc or multi-stage races such as the Atacama Crossing, the Gobi March or Jungle Ultra in Peru.
