NEW BALANCE TEAM
Jade boasts a steady and impressive list of trail running accolades, which until now doesn’t include a 100km race. “I’ve always wanted to complete a 100km race and I think that 2022 is the year to do it. UTCT 100km is on the cards and I cannot wait”, says Jade.
In setting a goal as big as this, Jade recognises the importance of nutrition in a mental and physical challenge of this nature. Fuelling your body can either make or break your training and racing. In knowing this, Cadence Nutrition has become a vital part of her journey.
Jade started her running career on the road, completing many marathons and ultra distance events including two Comrades and Two Oceans marathons each. After having her first child during Covid-Lockdown, she was inspired to hit the trails. The mountains have since become her meditation and strength point…to the point that Jade considers climbing her superpower.
Long Saturday runs in Silvermine Nature Reserve are Jade’s favourite training session, where the goal is clock mileage. She loves the variety of jeek track, trails and technical running - and uses Cadence Marathon and CarboFuel bars to fuel on these runs. A Vanilla Revive shake is a must as soon as she is back at home.
After this mother of a one-year old gave us an inspiring UTCT 65km Trail win in 2021, we can’t wait to see Jade’s running career hit new heights.
