The most fantastic weekend of over 50kms of trail running in the Gold Coast Hinterland.
Video highlights of our four days, three nights hiking New Zealand’s incredible Tongariro Northern Circuit.
An 8km trail race at Ewen Maddock Dam in 36C heat and intense stumidity. Yowsers.
If the Terminator look of the Jawbreakers isn’t your jam, then these may be the sunnies for you.
Swallowed a moth; stood on a toad. My first night trail race was full of mud and good times!
Don’t be caught out wearing the “wrong socks” on your bike. Yep, you know it’s a thing.

A fantastic, lightweight yet sturdy solution to carry around water and any other trail paraphernalia you wish.
“You can walk up the hills”. My first Trail “Race” – Glasshouse Trail Series, Flinders Tour 26km – July 2016.
From triathlon to trail running – checking out the Flinders 26km in 2016* * Finish line mug and burger included.
If you’re going on a multi day hike in NZ and don’t fancy carrying a tent, chances are a Department Of Conservation (DOC) Hut might be a great option
Easy to use; kills bacteria AND viruses; rechargeable and a digital smiley face to tell you you’re good to go. What’s not to love.
Lightweight sunglasses with a versatile lens. All, while looking like a female terminator.
My favourite shorts for swim/bike/run. Also great for standalone rides or runs. Versatile, comfy and durable.

My first trail “race” since injury and my second ever! A well organised, fun and undulating 8.6km course at Bunyaville.
My new Omm Kamleika race smock has arrived. All I need now is a wintry change to test it out in the Queensland summer!
My “go to” for handheld hydration on shorter runs or routes where I can refill. Lightweight and no fuss.
The classic Trangia stove. One of my all time favourite pieces of camping kit. Guaranteed, you’ll find yourself nodding knowingly to other campers cooking on Trangias…
Camping on the Whitsundays – a magical way to experience the islands, but beware of Tiresome George licking your brekkie.
The Whitsundays are a beautiful place to paddle, but be prepared and know your own limits.
