2014 125KM RUN CHAMPION
About the Athlete
It may sound like a hit song - but there ain’t no mountain high enough, or no valley wide enough to keep ultra-endurance trail runner, Ryan Sandes away. He’s up for any challenge and has broken many a record in his very successful career. Among Ryan’s accomplishments is being the 1st and only person to win an ultra trail race on all 7 continents. Ryan was awarded the 4 Desert Championship in 2010 and was the only competitor to win every stage of the race. This year Ryan started by winning the 125km Trans Gran Canaria race, on the Gran Canary Islands.
Recently, Ryan and fellow extreme athlete Ryno Griesel, traversed the Drakensberg Mountains in a record time of 41 hours and 49 minutes, slashing the previous record by almost 19 hours! Just a few weeks ago Ryan finished second in the gruelling 168km Ultra-Trail Mount Fuji Race in Japan.
