Marathon Runner, Trail Runner


I'm a marathon runner who is also attempting to cross over to the trails. I live in Gembrook, Victoria with my wife and two boys and running for me is a pursuit of how far I can push myself. I love the challenge that running can bring, especially when putting myself in races and against other competitors that push me out of my comfort zone. 

I feel it is the friendly vibe of trail running that has dragged me over from running on the roads full time; and the way you can lose yourself in the scenery that's so appealing to me. Always after a fresh challenge and trails and ultra trails bring exactly that for me right now.

VFuel Endurance Gels, especially Raspberry Lemonade Flavour. Easy on the stomach and great taste in a small easy to carry package.


I work full time as a Plasterer when I'm not running, and the rest of my time when not training or competing is spent with my young family these days. Hopefully I can continue to be a good role model for them as they begin their own sporting lives.
