Mini CV
Ever since I first heard about Spartathalon it has been on my must-do-list. I have never been to Greece and the type pf race it is suits my skills if past races are anything to go by. Its Iconic nature is a massive draw card for me and i hope to be able to compete at it one day.

I have competed on 3 Australian teams at 1 world championships and 2 Commonwealth Championships, the latter one I was a Bronze individual medalist with 217km. In 2014 I ran 214.7km to make the Australian Team for the Turin World Championships.

In 2015 I became a National Podium Level 24 Hour Mountain biker also so now have 2 strings to my bow. I will always hold Ultra running however as my favourite sport, the people I have met and the experiences I have had over the years have been amazing.

Described as the world's most grueling race, the Spartathlon runs over rough tracks and muddy paths (often it rains during the race), crosses vineyards and olive groves, climbs steep hillsides and, most challenging of all, takes the runners on the 1,200 meter ascent and descent of Mount Parthenio in the dead of night.
This is the mountain, covered with rocks and bushes, on which it is said Pheidippides met the god Pan.

Spartathlon is the event that brings this deed to attention today by drawing a legend out of the depths of history. The idea for its creation is belongs to John Foden, a British RAF Wing Commander. As a lover of Greece and student of ancient Greek history, Foden stopped his reading of Herodotus' narration regarding Pheidippides, puzzled and wondering if a modern man could cover the distance from Athens to Sparta, i.e. 250 kms, within 36 hours.
