Competitions and Sports

I have very fond memories of competing in athletics carnivals back in school. From ~2018 I signed up for my first trail running race in Tamworth and kicked off a real competition phase of my life (which I’m gladly still in at time of writing).

TLDR - To date (May 2022) my longest (128K) and most difficult Ultra Marathon in Central Australia. Gruelling course with no forgiveness. But I made it in 23h 22m and in 6th place. Amazing what the body and mind can do!

I had my first DNF in an ultra marathon at BTU110 due to knee issues. I have to embrace my inner shark and learn from this - Sharks only move forwards.

Running at the biggest triathlon in the world for a good cause with HeartKids

I attempted to run the entire Great North Walk from Newcastle to Sydney (~270kms) over ~3 days. Supported by my lovely wife - we had an epic journey!
