Run Larapinta: A rollercoaster ride

For Mat’s 40th birthday, I signed us up to Run Larapinta, a four-day, 132km (and then some…) trail run across parts of the iconic Larapinta Trail in Central Australia.

It was, without a doubt, the toughest running event we’ve ever done – yet, easily the most rewarding.

Read all about the ups and downs in my article in Trail Run Magazine here.

Take a minute to check out some pics below – we hope they inspire you to visit the Larapinta Trail! You won’t be disappointed.
