I am 43 years old and apart from my family, friends and company, I am passionate about mountains and running ultra distance mountain/ trail races.
Sport has always played a major part in my life and from a young age I tried to compete in every imaginable sport but NEVER long distance running! My passion for ultra-trails started in 2012 when a hiking trip in the Drakensberg set my soul alight and a new passion was born in an instant!
2019 has been another amazing year filled with both highs and lows. It started with a 3rd place at Addo 100 miler, followed by my first DNF and DNS at Ultra Trail Drakensberg 100 miler and Mac Mac 100 miler respectively but ended on a real high with 1st Place at the Cederberg 100 miler.
I thought I had 2020 planned out when the guys from Trail Adventure confirmed the inaugural 230 Mile Tusker Expedition Ultra Trail Run in 2020. Running through the African Wilderness #InTheFootstepOfGiants is a once in lifetime opportunity one cannot miss.
People often ask why I run (far). Because I can, I love it, it quiets the noise, meet people, see new places and mountains, inspire others, make my wife and daughters proud and teach my girls about hard work and giving it your all! To build resilience for the really hard things in life and be the best I can be but above all I run (far) to bring honor and glory to God and His Creation.
You don't have to run far, just get outside or go for a walk, do a park run or road race or maybe even a Comrades Marathon. I support the Eden to Addo Wildlife Corridor Project and my aim is not only to raise enough money for my entry fee but also raise enough funds to help realise the Organisers dream so that future generations can continue to experience God's country.

Eden to Addo Corridor Initiative
THE DREAM: The Eden to Addo vision is based on the practical potential within the landscape connecting the Western and Eastern Cape of South Africa. But this vision is guided by a deeper question and dream: What if we could re-establish ancient elephant migration paths across the Cape, what then? What other wildlife will benefit and how would that restore the ecological balance of the region?
