Veterinary Science final year student
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.

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.

The pledge amounts are per each minute that Naomi completes the challenge below her 'Goal Time' of 240 minutes. So if Naomi ran in a time of 205 minutes then all her pledges would be multiplied by 35 (minutes).
Please Note: there is a minimum pledge multiplication factor of 10 and a maximum factor capped at 45
