And, if this year has taught us anything, (science, religi

History, take us back, when did Ultra X start?Ultra X was initially a stand-alone race called the Wadi Rum Ultra. A multi-stage race in the stunning Jordanian desert. It was originally formed by Jamie Sparks in 2015, however, having run the event in 2017 as a competitor, Sam came on board and the two started plotting. Both had a passion for advent
Finding the perfect back drop for my "handstand comeback' at 5:45am was a challenge, not so much where, but if?? Hyde Park Corner.... easy, The Wellington Arch...perfect, now it was a matter of can I do it? Too many times we doubt ourselves and consequently miss opportunities that could have been amazing for us. Before I had my cancer surgery I li
Watching the Tour de France, ever year on TV, just makes me want to ride my bike....you know what I mean!? A good mountain climb with lots of beautiful views and a coffee at the top, really is my idea of fun. My most favourite has to be the incredible Mt Ventoux in southern France. 1909 m to the top, 2 different landscapes, forest into
The ultimate challenge and reward. At 102kms, this is the longest course of the event and the only one that goes through the night. An elevation gain of 3200 metres and a maximum elevation of 588 metres. With terrain and the elements to face, the finish line is the ultimate reward, perfectly located at Draydons Winery, sounds pretty good already.
Maybe it's just me but I had a VERY excessive August. Maybe it's down to being in Lockdown for the 4 months. Maybe it's because my work life has been an upward battle. Maybe I'm just making excuses? More likely the latter. I ate in a huge surplus. I trained far too much. I drank more alcohol than I usually would and I worked&n
The Hunter Valley Ultra is on. An iconic and fun event in one of the nicest parts of New South Wales. Fast-flowing fire trails and grasslands with plenty of challenging hills and stunning views.
Choose your own adventure with a 102 or 60km endurance race or take it a little easier with a 30 or 12 cross country race. Registrations are open now, get amongst it.
Innovative thinking and a passion for discovery are just the beginning when it comes to telling the story of Ultra Marathon event brand Ultra X. Their events are gruelling, life defining experience for a community of people that grab life with two hands and hold it tightly. Ultra X are known for hosting events in some of the most remote and demand
Smugglers Cave a short walk to the Tijuana border. In addition to a heavy ascend. This day was a little too hot for us, so we didn’t quite make it to the final of the hike. Really interesting place to visit.......
hi, nice to meet you all. I'm glad to join the community, it's inspiring and motivates me to push myself harder
We can't compare apples to apples anymore. When it comes to commerce, 'business as usual' isn't nearly going to cut it in the transparent world we exist. The social and environmental climate of our planet is on a seemingly constant sheet of thin ice. We can stay within our bubbles of naive arrogance, or, we can step beyond the line of comfort and
With over 15 years of road cycling I thought my bike skills would be well equipped for some down hill mountain biking.......🤕🥴
Either way it was the best day spending it with my son Preston. Awesome time together
Sometimes we are so focused on the end goal we forget to enjoy the journey along the way. I know at times I’m guilty of this and is something I constantly strive for improvement.
Enjoy every step you can! 😊

So I've decided to set myself a goal to run every day for a whole year...that's every single day for 365 days in aid of sponsoring the Shepherd Centre, Wollongong, an organisation very close to our family...we have been extremely fortunate to have had the support of the guys at the The Shepherd Centre for our daughter Indiana over the last year. Indi was born with profound bi-lateral hearing loss in both ears - Not sure what we would have done without them.
Over the last 31 days I've been successful in running daily so am now confident, ready and highly motivated to go live and push on for the next 11 months!
I'll be looking to run 3900km over the year...which is the equivalent of running Sydney to Perth at an average of 10.7km/day.
Follow me daily on Instagram, Strava & Garmin Connect to see how I'm tracking.
If you would like to sponsor me $1/day over the course of the year, with all proceeds going to the Shepherd Centre via my Go Fund Me page. Any support would be incredibly appreciated!!✌️

Hiking in the Grand Tetons National Park is something hard to explain. The sheer beauty and size is out of this world. This hike up to Delta Lake took us above 9,500ft and was worth every step! Words can’t even describe!
Being active in the outdoors is such a great feeling. A 600ft descend (& climb 😩) gets you to the launch pad of the Upper Falls in Yellowstone National Park. A must when your around this way.
The 2021 Ultraman Australia (additional) athletes have been announced. Congratulations to all of those who made the cut. It's a real shame that the event was unable to run this year (thanks rona) but understandable nonetheless. I can't wait to get to Noosa next year and race this epic race alongside you all. Happy training. ultramanoz.com.au/athletes-2020/

One of my objectives through my Active Place account is to promote individuals who have had a huge impact on myself. There are certain people that I look to for a source of inspiration and wisdom and I would be doing you a disservice by not sharing the knowledge and wisdom which they have passed on.

This is a blog post I wrote the day after I got back from running the Wadi Rum Ultra... The Trailblazers Club maiden challenge finished on the 15th of October. The team ran for YoungMinds UK and raised a total of Â£16,380. Reading this back reminds me of what an incredible experience it wasâ¦ it actually gave me goos
