My chosen distance target: 96km.

My Activity Tracking



Goal to Kokoda


You’ve conquered Kokoda!

Support my 96km challenge to save lives

This March, I am conquering 96km to support Soldier On's lifesaving mental health services and to honour our brave veterans and their families.

Why 96kms? Because that's the length of the Kokoda Track to symbolise the courage and sacrifice of our service members.

Please March On with me and support my challenge, and together we can save lives.

$37 can fund a peer support session to 3 veterans, giving a safe and supportive space and an important first step in gaining the help they need.

Thanks so much for your support and wish me luck!

Day 1 - let’s do this!!

Monday 1st Mar
Happy first day of March!
I #nevermissamonday so I started the week right with my usual 45min hiit session at 5:30am but added in a quick 2km run to cool down after and get chipping away at my 96kms!

2 down 94 to go! 
The big kms will definitely be smashed with big weekend adventures but rest assured I shall be getting a few kms knocked off week day too!

Have a great day all!
