Nicki Rehn is an Australian-Canadian who loves the beach, but is hopelessly addicted to the mountains so has spent most of her adult life in Calgary, AB, Canada. She came to adventure and endurance sports by way of competitive triathlon and road marathon. It's been over a decade since she raced on pavement, preferring instead adventure racing, mountain biking, ultramarathon running, fast-packing, skiing, orienteering, and mountain scrambling. When not running, Nicki works as an education consultant. She also loves to travel and write.
In this episode, we discuss Nicki’s upbringing in Australia and her female unsupported fastest know time (FKT) of the 1000km Bibbulmun Track in Western Australia as well as what inspires her to attempt such epic distances in epic places. This lady runner is a 3 time finisher of Tor des Geants (a 330km race in Italy), 5 time attendee at the Barkley Marathons, second place finisher at Sinister 7 100m and Fat Dog 120m and has even done the Dragon’s Back Race in Wales on a punishing 305km course that will test the very best. While Nicki has a resume that will stun even the most accomplished ultrarunner, we primarily invited her on the podcast to talk about her most experience of running the Snowman Race in Bhutan with an invite from the king himself.
Strap into your seats or drop the hammer on your run because this episode is bound to leave you feeling like you can accomplish anything!
