Ragna Debats is a Dutch Trail & Skyrunner settled in Spain. She comes from the equestrian specialty of Dressage, in which she worked as a professional for several years. After abandoning her dream of being an Olympian in that sport, she discovered mountain races and started in the world of Trail. Her career as a runner began 10 years ago and starting from 0 she gradually became a triple world champion in 2018:
- IAAF / IAU World Trail (Penyagolosa Trails)
- World Skyrunning (Ben Nevis, Trails)
- ISF Overall World Cup (as Kilian Jornet)
What we are seeing this beginning of 2019 is the continuation of so much effort and sacrifice: Marathon des Sables (Desert of the Sahara) and Transvulcania.
After having represented Spain as a rower at 5 World Championships and 10 World Cups, he took up trail running. His first race was the 90-km Cantabria Challenge in 2014 He ran an excellent Transgrancanaria® in 2019: 65th in general and 17th in his category. We are sure he has merely been warning up.

He was one of the first athletes to place trust in Nutritape when the product was launched on the market in April 2017. His record as a tri-athlete and marathon runner, together with his photos and videos, has made him a person of trust and someone who is very dear to us. He isn´t famous, but he will be one day. 🙂
His experience at UTMB® 2015 helped us in the final phase of the development of Nutritape. Since then he has become a cornerstone in the continuous development of our transdermal BCAA patches.
At 35, he is one of the most veteran active trail runners in our country. He has been running races for 18 years around the world, winning victories in Chile, Argentina, Spain … But it has not been until these last two seasons that the good results have come, since he has been able to devote himself fully to it: Winner of the Transvulcania and of the Skyextra World Cup 2018.
This 2019 he started winning at The Coastal Challange (Costa Rica) but an injury left him out of the competition until June, when he returned strongly in the world cup winning in Madeira and third in Mount Olympus (Greece).
Surely his biggest hits are coming!
He has been a professional tri-athlete for over 20 years. Among his huge prize list stands out the achievement of the Challenge BCN 2009 (distance Ironman) as well as two epics: being the 5-time winner of Ironman France (Nice) and the 6-time winner of Embrunman (also held in France). We have enjoyed his invaluable support since early 2017, which has been a major incentive for us to keep on improving on a continuous basis.
