Ultra Runner, Alpinist, Vertically Obsessed
Sam has always had an interest in seeing what the human body is capable of. From paddling first known descent of class 5 waterfalls, to holding course records in 120km running races. Sam enjoys the humbling pursuit of chasing adventure in the mountains.
Fall of 2019 I ran 25km in to Mt. Assiniboine than climbed it the following day with Matt, Luke and Colemen
This was my first race outside of High School, and decided to just jump right in to the ultra scene. The course was muddy, swampy, and had lots of bushwhacking. But after 14 hours I crossed the finish line in first place!
Fantastic course, loved running through the rainforest of BC. Had some IT band issues just over half way through the race, instead of catching 3rd place, I ended up falling back to 5th. Overall happy with my race, and how I dealt with the pain.
Favourite mountain to run in the Bow Valley
Standing on the summit after navigating an incredibly crevasse filled glacier, punching through neumerous time up to our hips or deeper
Colemen walking down the summit ridge of Mt. Assiniboine "The Matterhorn of the Rockies".
Matt and Luke looking off at Mt. Temple, the king of the Lake Louise group while nearly on the summit of Mt. Aberdeen
Banff is one of the most ideal locations to live as a climber. When temperatures drop and trails are no longer attainable, the Bow Valley turns in to an ice climbing paradise
In 2014, I finally ran a waterfall I have been looking at for over 2 years, and there has never been a known or recorded decent of it. After studying the waterfall in all river levels and seasons I finally sent my 2 year project and couldn't have been more stoked
