Ben has a background with scientific research, studying physics at University of Queensland. He is one smart cookie and we feel honoured to have him on the Brisbane Trail Ultra Team as our race ambassador.
Ben has proven he is a true athlete in the sport with over 5 years of elite racing for his age being only 26 years of age. Most ultra endurance athletes haven’t even started running a full program at his age, Ben’s been on multiple world tours. Racing on the Skyrunning and Ultra Trail World Tour.
Ben values evidence based and up-to-date training methods, but as an athlete also understands the importance of a personalised approached. His passion for chasing for audacious goals overflows to his peers and he is dedicated to assisting other runners as a Mile 27 coach.
He’s currently in Chamonix, France about to race the TDS 121km with 7500m of vertical gain and loss through the French Alps. We wish him the best of luck and safe journey over the ‘Grande Randonnée’ paths crossing though the Mont-Blanc, Beaufort, Tarentaise and Aosta valley countryside. Go for it Ben!
We are so proud and lucky to have such a stellar athlete racing for the Brisbane Trail Ultra 2019.
