From a young age, I was involved mainly in Martial Arts/Kick boxing (competing, teaching & training) and mountain biking along with many other sports. I only started my trail running/running journey around 2012. I soon became very interested in the endurance side of running and everything involved. I jumped right in with my first main race being an Ultra (50km race). Since then I’ve done events/runs like Mt Oxford, Arrowsmith, Kepler, The Great Naseby Water Race, Coast to Coast Team, Old Ghost Road and The Northburn 100 Miles(160Km) plus many, many more. With numerous 160km races under my belt the plan is to someday do an event longer than 100 miles and some multi-day running races too.
What I enjoy most about trail/ultra-running, which also keeps me motivated, is our amazing country, the community behind the sport (like Team CP) and sharing what I’ve learnt with others. I’ve been involved with Team CP for a long time now, participating in most of the classes and now becoming more involved with coaching. I currently take the Thursday night run class and enjoy supporting others, sharing my love of running, inspiring others, imparting my knowledge learnt (distance Ultra running) and helping people push themselves towards their goals.
Favorite outdoor activities – Trail Running, Mountain Biking, Road Cycling and Hiking… Just being in the outdoors/mountains really.
