Help Fi Fly (NZ flag at 2019 24Hr World Champs)
Channelling my tenacity into RUNNING, I’ve been chosen to represent NZ at the 2019 24Hr World Champs. BUT, this hinges on 100% self-funding.Wellington
I'm incredibly honoured to have been selected to "fly" the New Zealand (NZ) flag at the 2019 International Association of Ultrarunners (IAU) 24 Hour World Championships in Albi, Southern France (26/27 October). For 24 hours, I’ll run around a 1.5km athletics track/tarmac circuit, accumulating the most kilometers I can. I’ll need to channel every ounce of tenacity I have.
My first attempt at this gruelling format was last December at the 2018 IAU 24 Hour Asia and Oceania Championships in Taiwan. I achieved a momentous 202.32km, placed fourth female (highest ranking Kiwi), and helped secure a bronze medal for the NZ women's team.
I’m feeling highly motivated by this second attempt at 24 Hours. I intend to take my learning from Taiwan and turn it into magic in France. To ensure I'm at the top of my game for the World Championships, I'm 100% committed to the significant hours of training and sacrifices required. However, on the financial front, I could do with your help.
To get to the start-line, I need to drum-up around $5,000.
If you're able to please DONATE - thank you! All contributions will MAKE A DIFFERENCE.
