I’m a Norwegian in my late 30’s living in Kristiansand, Norway. Starter running in 2011 and did my first ultra in 2014.

Ultra History

My first “real” ultra was the Highland Fling in 2014 even though I did a CTS event as training a few months earlier. Has since then run 27 ultras mostly preferring 100k+ trail.

Why WHW?

After my first Highland Fling I’ve had WHWR on my “must do” list of races. This year I finally managed to put my name in the hat and luckily got a place.

Aim for the race?

I like to have a mental time-goal even though I’m no speedster. Looking at previous results and considering “I’m better the longer it gets” I’m aiming for sub-20 hours.
