Your Favourite Local Trail run?

Trail running in Hogsback will always be one of my favourite locations. The Stellenbosch mountains are also some of my favourite playgrounds such as the Jonkershoek trails and summitting Botmaskop and Stellenboschberg.

What got you into trail running, what do you love about it?

I’ve been running since I was about 8 years old. I was always obsessed with adventure and easily got hooked into cross country and eventually trail running. I love that trail running gives you an escape from reality. It’s the best form of therapy and you just feel great after a proper mountain mission!

What are your trail aspirations?

I am competing in the XTERRA World Champs in Italy this September and want to achieve a podium position.

What is your biggest achievement or race you completed?

I won my age category at the 2022 Cross Triathlon World Championships in Targu Mures, Romania.
