I proudly support the Australian Childhood Foundation, one of Australia’s leading not-for- profits, supporting children to recover from the trauma of abuse, neglect and family violence. The Australian Childhood Foundation believes all children have the right to a safe and loving childhood and it works to protect and support children and aid their recovery from the impacts of their experiences.
Only those who risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go.
Ultra Marathon Running
I love the physical act of running. My heart pounding in my chest. The icy mountain air burning as I take a breath or the hot desert sun beating on my head. Spending my time with wonderful adventurous people as we explore new trails or share the pains of a another day of long racing.
I specialise in self-supported multi-stage races. These cover many kilometers of often remote and very challenging terrain whilst carrying all of my kit and food. The challenge of planning for and preparing myself goes way beyond just physical training. What nutrition do I carry, what kit do I take?
my current project
The continental challenge is a race series of 5 ultra-marathons run on 5 continents over an 18 month period.
In May 2019 I completed the first race in the series, The Track for the second time. The Track is a 522km race in the Northern Territory, Australia. As with all the races, it is a self-supported stage race. In November 2019 I finished in 3rd place in Ultra Africa in Mozambique. In March I'll race Ultra Asia in Vietnam, Ultra Norway in July 2020 and culminating with Ultra Bolivia on the Altiplano above La Paz in September 2020.
