A story 12 long years in the making, 6 c2k finishes later, 12 hours off his first attempt of nearly 40 hrs & ultimately sowing the seed that led to an ‘all in’ declaration in 2022 to not just take part, but to win.  

Find out what the ‘all in’ approach actually involved, what he learnt from previous winners, why he employed a mindset coach, how to turn your support crew into professionals & exactly which 3 questions he asks himself hundreds of times mid-race.
