Much more than a sporting approach, Summum is a path towards its destiny.
To know who we are and fulfill our true destiny, there are several possible paths :
* a return to wild nature (Into the wild, H.D. Thoreau, J.J. Rousseau)
* a self-transcendence (Socrates, Nietzsche)
SUMMUM is a concentrate of overcoming in a grandiose nature... to discover Yourself.
The SUMMUM experience means traveling an extraordinary path.
