Rae grew up on the trails, his dad was a Springbok paraglider so as a young kid he spent hours running up and down mountains all over South Africa. His racing background is in triathlon and duathlon (Olympic Distance), before moving to Cape Town, Rae represented the Eastern Cape in Nationals. When he moved to Cape Town, the challenge of trail got him hooked! Rae believes that Cape Town has some of the best trails in the world, plus the added bonus of running into Ryan Sandes every now and then.
One day I am running the ”Racing the Planet : Iceland”
Trail Running is kind of like road running, except it’s not on the road, and it’s much harder, and more fun, with better views, and more rewarding, actually… it’s nothing like road running!
