Linda found trail running after a decade of running road ultras (10 Comrades, 16 Two Oceans) and never went back. She maintains trail is definitely the way forward! Always with a preference for ultra distance, Linda has filled the past 10 years with races in deserts, over mountains, across glaciers, through rivers, in hot and cold conditions. In a nutshell, if it’s adventurous running, Linda will find it!
