TIMELINE

2013

In 2019, I jumped in to the Ultra scene, by signing up for the Edmonton 100km, Squamish 50 Mile and the Golden 120km.

I quickly fell in love with the training, being able to test my body and prove to myself that these physical feats were far from impossible, if trained and conditioned properly. 

Come June, I ended up winning the Edmonton 100km. July, I placed 5th in the Squamish 50 Mile then another 1st in September at the Golden 120km and holding the course record

When the pandemic hit in March, I had to cancel an FKT attempt of the Annapurna Circuit in Nepal. A 230 km trekking route that circumnavigates the Annapurna massive of the Himalayas. I knew I had to do something with all my hard training, and quickly came up with the idea of running the 230km Icefields parkway from Lake Louise to Jasper. After successfully finishing the run I completed the 230km in 31 hours. Being the first person to run the entire length of the parkway and setting the new FKT

2021

With races still not 100% full capacity, and travel still not reliable. I decided to look for another local project that would continue to push ultra long distances. The 1,130km Great Divide Trail was always on the back of my mind, and I thought this would be the year to do it. After completing 240km in 3.5 days, and in the middle of a 200km solo section through remote rockies wilderness. I was relentlessly charged at by a cougar, to the point where I almost emptied my entire can of bear spray can on it. When I finally got a clean shot of the cougar I began to retreat, twisting my ankle as I ran backwards and sideways (knowing you can’t turn your back to a cougar) and ended hopping 30km out to the nearest exit, ending my GDT journey.
