My legs had just not recovered from my previous Ultra (the Buffalo Stampede 75km on 11 April). It surely has been difficult to deal with, but I guess this is part of being an...

Transvulcania: 9 May 2015

I have been dreaming of running Transvulcania in La Palma ever since I read about it back in 2012 when I started my trail running career with Salomon SA. And now, it is a mere 4 days till I line up on the start against some of the world’s best trail runners. Gulp Gulp… This race is very much talked about it; for its atmosphere, the...

This year the competition in the ladies category was to be hot, as Carla van Huyssteen (Xterra...

Obviously it’s still a...

What better way than to go play on the single tracks of Oak Valley in Grabouw for the Spur Summer Trail Series XL on Sunday. We were treated...
