This past weekend I was one of 130 fortunate folks to “trailrun” one of South Africa’s iconic five day hiking trails, the Whale Trail, offered by Merrell and the Mountain Runner Team as a 53km run over “spectacular mountain fynbos, technical rocky ridgelines, sandy beach stretches and endless, mind blowing, beautiful vistas.” Although the Whale Trail has been on my bucket list since the 1st...

Its less than 14 hours to go to the Mont Blanc 80k (actually it is 86km with a staggering 6100m of ascent and descent!) The pre-race preparation and build-up was supposed to be perfect, as I had 3 weeks in Chamonix with Christiaan to relax and train on the course. However, two and a half weeks ago, I fell badly on my shin on a...

Drenched in sweat. Numb legs. Kilometre 33, 17 to go. An unfavourable combination of a very humid, windless day in Mauritius and the aftershock of my win at the Trail du Colorado 39km two weeks prior. The fact that Mauritius had an unusual amount of rain in the 3 weeks leading up to the race made the already extremely technical trails somewhat of a mudbath,...
