Born in South Africa but brought up in the UK I came to Ultra Running through a love of the mountains. Having climbed for many years, I discovered I was drawn to covering long distances in the mountains, quickly. So naturally, running seemed a natural progression and the best way to fulfill this desire! Since then I have been hooked and pushing the distance having had my first race season in 2013. I like longer races and this is where I excel so my focus for 2014 will be over the longer distances. While I enjoy competing my real passion lie in pushing the limits of my abilities and exploring the world through running.
Highlights from 2013 included:
Tor des Geants, Italy. 206miles. New British Record, 24th overall.
Ronda del Cims, Andorra. Skyrunning World Series. 13th overall. (1st 100mile race).
Ice trail Tarentaise, France. Skyrunning World Series.
Goals for 2014:
Transvulcania, La Palma
Hardrock 100, Colorado
Kima Trophy, Italy
DIagonale Des Fous, Reunion Island
Favourite Scott running productI love the new Trail Rocket shoes! Low profile, lightweight and a great grip for when out on the trails. With built in eRide technology to help keep me on my toes when running and a lightweight comfortable upper they are my shoe of choice whether I am on a long training run in the UK or blasting the trails of Europe and North America.
