2017 has definitely been one to remember for our community of trail runners in South Africa. From insane performances (too many to name)  to Tuesday Trails gees to Ultra Trail Cape Town and Otter putting us on the map world-wide, it’s been one heck of a year.

Looking ba...

‘Process orientated goals’ seem to be the new buzz words in training these days. Or maybe not new, but newly internalized for me. I’ve read a lot about it and understand it in theory, but despite my efforts to incorporate it into my own life and training I haven’t, unt...

We all know that feeling during the last few kilometers of a long, tough race (or a short, fast one for us ultra runners) where time seems to slow down. Kilometres tick by achingly slowly and all you can think about is getting to the finish line and stop doing what you...

I  still can’t put my finger on what makes this race one of the best in the world, but I know it comes down to the beauty of the trail and the organizers - Magnetic South. I have never been to such a fun, exciting, happy and meaningful event. They add that extra bit of...

Last month Landie Greyling, Robyn Owen and I decided to book ourselves a girl’s week away in the Drakensberg  - the biggest mountain range in South Africa. By girl’s week we don’t mean pretty hair, cute nails and pampering… Girls week for us is more like daily summits...
