Aaron moved from Queensland to Mount Beauty in the Victorian Alps for the mountains. Running, snowboarding, cycling and hiking are a huge part of his life. He spent 5 summers working on the local Parks Victoria Firecrew with legendary mountain runner Andy Kromar. A combination of Andy’s influence and his love of ascending meant he was soon entering more mountain running races as well as still racing on the bike. He is now totally focused on mountain running. Aaron loves the new style Skyrunning races with beautiful trails & lots of steep climbing!
