CHELSEA AUSTIN

TRAIL RUNNER | HIKER

Hello, I’m Chelsea and I’m a mum of three based in Hampshire. My outdoor adventures began with hiking which I have been doing for roughly 3 years now and I have recently begun trail running too. Despite being quite new to the wonders of the great outdoors, I have definitely become very passionate about it very quickly.

I’ve had some amazing adventures so far, including hiking all over the UK and climbing an active volcano in Bali, but the most memorable was spending 2 weeks trekking to Annapurna Base Camp in Nepal with my friend. The landscapes and views were incredible. Being 13,550 feet up in the middle of the Himalayan mountains is a feeling you could never forget.

Last year I entered a few short trail races which really wet my appetite for trail running. This year I have entered my first ultra-marathon - Race to the king. Most people find this an interesting choice given I’ve never even done a marathon before! But hey, go big or go home, right?
