Hanny Allston has accomplished her final 'competitive dream' after many years of racing at an elite level - completing the 100km distance at the Ultra Trail Australia. In her words, 'It was an emotional celebration of everything my mind and body has done for me over my running journey, and the lessons I learnt along the way'.
In this podcast we cover all things UTA: from the days before, to the actual race and into recovery. We also discuss Hanny's tips and tricks for trail runners entering UTA next year (which are also applicable to other races!)
She now can hang her race shoes up and hand the baton to the the new ranks after competing at the pointy end of the field for many years. Hanny might be finished at elite level racing but her experience, knowledge and love of trails continues. We hope you enjoy this conversation.
