I am a pro mountain and trail runner for adidas TERREX, supported by Maurten, Redbull, and Faces. Despite an early affinity to running in cross country races as a child, it took me many years after a ‘running hiatus’ for me to come full circle and find the sport again. I discovered trail running in 2017 in Cape Town, it was a beautiful way to explore our ‘backyard’, and in doing so, it rekindled my competitive spirit and love for running. I love everything that comes with being a professional athlete, the process of training and preparing for a race, optimising nutrition, and trying to be the best version of myself when I put myself on a start line. I’ve been exceptionally lucky to compete at some of the world’s largest trail races and spend the summer training and racing in Europe. I cannot wait for all the mountain adventures I get to have in the years to come.
