In 2015 swimming was daily exercise for Matt. However on a field trip to New Zealand for university, daily swims weren’t possible so he did some trail runs in New Zealand’s South Island.

With a new-found love for running and his swimming background, Matt started to compete in Triathlons and completing a bunch of half Ironmans and one full Ironman.

Matt soon realized he preferred to spend long days out on the trail rather than training on a road bike and his focus shifted from triathlons to trail running and then to ultra-trail running !
