I always thought the soloution was e will pass when his indiviual strides are longer than the tortoises distance traveled during the time it takes Achilles to make one stride

To complete a stride, Achilles foot would have to move to half way through his stride, and to do that it would need to move half way to that , and so on.
That just shifts the thing down.

The universe having some kind of finite resolution like the planck length would also resolve this.
But it's not necessary, for the reasons stated above.
