Bio
 
Resides: Sydney
Occupation: Environmental Scientist
Favourite Trails: Sydney’s Bush Trails, Blue Mountains
La Sportiva Shoe Favourite: Akasha

Gill’s love the outdoors has transitioned from spending weekends climbing, canyoning, mountain biking and walking to a greater focus on Rogaining (the sport of long-distance cross-country navigation) and trail running – Ultras! Her strength is definitely endurance.

Gill completed in her first 24 hour Rogaining event in 2006 and since then she has Rogained socially and competed in State, Australian and World Championships.  In 2009 she started trail running regularly around the local Sydney bushland tracks with friends, and since 2010 has been entering trail races of increasing frequency and distance. She says, “the best thing about Rogaining and trail running is the new places I get to explore (and the people I get to meet). As there is always another mountain to climb with a spectacular view at the top”. 2013 was an awesome year for Gill, starting with her dominates at the Alpine Challenge and was very much guaranteed the win and line honors, until the crazy conditions set the race into a spin and forced the closure of the course. Gill’s highlight was her fantastic result in the UTMB ending 6th, the highest placed Australian at this event! check out her report here. But there are more things to come from Gill still this year and for sure into 2015…
