We are proud to announce that Brisbane Trail Ultra will have the energetic Alana Vought as one of our race ambassador for the July 2019 event.
Gold Coast elite athlete Alana Vought is an inspiration to so many trail runners. She is one of the most passionate and dedicated ultra-trail runners going around.
Alana has the ability to give herself selflessly supporting all those around her get to their goals and is someone who represents the ethos of trail ultra running. Alana gives her time again and again to help and support others around her. With all this energy of giving, we are surprised that she has the power to kick butt and excel herself. This one quality of Alana’s that our Brisbane Trail Ultra Team really admires.
Alana is a “Single Mum” of 2 children and is kicking on strong. She dares to win and it is paying off. Alana proves that you can be a mum and still be at the top of the game. You go girl!
Alana seems to be able to handle the pressure of elite competitive racing with her infectious, positive, energy and love for fun and for the sport of trail running. You can tell she races because she love’s it. She’s on the way up and has just been picked up by the Australian Hoka One One team. Go Alana.
This is why we are super excited to have her racing in July 6-7 2019 at the Brisbane Trail Ultra.
Alana Vought’s recent results are stellar and amongst a tough field of classy runners;
2017 1st Female Team Kokoda 96km Gold Coast
2018 1st Place Blackall 100km
2018 1st Place Coastal High 50
2018 1st Place Brisbane Rail Trail 50km
2018 3rd Overall, 2nd Mixed Team and close 1st Mixed Team at the Kokoda Challenge GC 96km it looks like the GC Physio Teams were close with only 2 minutes separating the GC Physio and Health Teams.
Alana’s legs are weapons!
Her results prove that she is strong enough to take her running career wherever she wishes to go. We hope Alana will use the Brisbane Trail Ultra as a stepping stone event to other international or national events in which the Brisbane Trail Ultra is designed for.
The Brisbane Trail Ultra course will hopefully suit a runner like Alana Vought, tough, technical, loads of single trails and with a heap of vertical gain to test those legs out. Our team at the Brisbane Trail Ultra can’t wait to see what she what time is is capable to doing over the 110km course.
Bring on the Brisbane Trail Ultra 6th July 2019!
