About

You’ll find mostly travel and ultrarunning reports here, and interviews with some amazing runners and adventurers. I often wished there were more interviews with female ultrarunners, as a lot of coverage is still quite male focused. Complaining doesn’t tend to yield much in terms of results, and as I have a background in radio and online news journalism, I tracked down a few ultra women myself. Parts were broadcast on ABC Radio National and the full interviews are here. I hope you enjoy listening as much as I enjoyed chatting with them.

Whenever attempting something big, I find mental preparation is the foundation. The interviews published here contributed to getting me through my first 100 Miler, the Bear 100, and subsequently the Leadville 100 and Hardrock 100, so they might be inspiring for you as well?

Races I’ve done myself are below so if I can help you with any info on those, you’re very welcome to get in touch,

Nicky
