About Me:

I have been in love with the mountains, forests and the sea since I can remember, and I can't imagine a better way to explore the wonders of nature than in my running shoes. To me trail running is more like a lifestyle than just a sport that I take part in- trail runners are my family and the mountains is where I feel at home. I have been running since the age of 12 and have been fortunate enough to take part in cross country and road running on a provincial and national level in the past. I am currently focusing my training mainly on ultra trails (100km's, 100milers mainly). I work and train hard to achieve my goals, and I love to share my running experiences with friends I’ve made through races and training across the country/ world.

Sporting Bio:

- Both Addo and Karkloof 100 milers in 2017, first lady and 3d overall
- 3rd lady in UTCT 2016 and 2017
- Madeira Island Ultra Trail 2018, 6th lady
- Respresented SA at World Champs in Penyagolosa, Spain 2018
- Ultra Trail Raidlight Beachcomber 2018, first lady

Reason for taking Challenge:

Before I studied veterinary science I studied wildlife and conservation, and worked as a field guide for a year. Conservation has always been really important to me, and is just as big a passion to me as trail running. The Rhino Peak Challenge combines my love for sport and nature, and enables me to make a difference by doing what I love for something I am really passionate about.
