Profession – Corporate Financier
I am as proudly South African as you get and have always believed that we live in arguably the most beautiful country in the world. I am therefore set on exploring every nook and cranny and feel sporting events offer the best way possible, whether its Comrades, Duzi, Cape Epic etc. Crowds of enthusiasts travel great distances to take part in these events…we have them on our door-step!
Running from Jozi to the Mother City is just another one of those incredible adventures where we can experience what this country has to offer…the people, the scenery, the adventure, and most importantly the propensity of saffers to help those less fortunate than themselves.
About to hang up my rugby boots after 10 years of club rugby, I am ready to enter the world of endurance races and start ticking off the bucket list of events mentioned above. Having completed a couple of Iron Man 70.3 events, I am keen to step it up a level to the main Iron Man in P.E, however Mad2Run will take preference over all else for the next few months.
The sheer magnitude of this challenge scares as me as much as the next guy, however with the drive of the individuals involved and the purpose for which we are attempting this…how can we fail?
