Anything that takes me out of my comfort zone and into a beautiful environment. Races that first come to mind are the Alpine Challenge 160km, Marysville 50km, Ultra Trail Australia 100km and the Walhalla Wound up is a favourite as it was my first official 50km run.
Sporting role model?:
Jared Campbell. Not a common household name but the only 3-time finisher of The Barkley 100 and probably one of the strongest ultra-runners out there. A race very few people start and even fewer finish, a race that has been on my bucket list for a while hoping to one-day line up at the start line.
Goal(s) for 2016:
My main goal will be doing the Marysville 50km and aiming to improve on last year’s finish time of 4:59.
