This year, the SULTAN MARATHON DES SABLES will welcome a new kind of runner. Guillaume Chelius, a junior research scientist in Inria’s DNET team and an ultra-marathon runner, will run 250 km over 7 days, kitted out with 16 sensors, which will, in real time and without any human intervention, measure numerous physiological, biomechanical and environmental variables. Once they have been sorted and analysed, the resulting data can be used to model the race and study the body’s movements, its performance levels, and the ways in which it adapts to the environment, weather conditions and fatigue.
