Till Schenk, Adventure Athlete

In today’s LEGEND LIFE STORY interview I will be speaking to Till Schenk who is originally from Germany but now lives in Girona, Spain. He is an international adventure and endurance sports athlete, motivational speaker, and event mc. ⁠He says that his goal is to experience the world through his own eyes. To explore cultures and our planet with a childlike wonder and to share his adventures and stories with an unbiased lens, inspiring people to see the beauty of our planet.

He says it is his inner curiosity and desire to challenge himself both physically and mentally that inspires him on his journeys. From bike packing through West Africa or crossing mountain ranges to exploring the 7 continents, it is nature and the appeal of the unknown that truly excites him.⁠

In our talk Till shares what his definition of living a legendary life is and how he went from triathlete and event MC to adventure athlete. He gives us an overview of his bike packing trip through West Africa which saw him bike 21 days, 3,100 kilometers and 141 hours in the saddle from Agadir, Morrocco to Gambia, helps him live this life. He also shares his definition of adventure and why he thinks others need to include more adventure in their life whilst sharing three life lessons he has learned in life.
