This passion and love for trails is very well translated into his trail running results, taking the National Trail Running Championships, and representing New Zealand in this discipline. Andrew loves lengthy trail running adventures, exploring some of New Zealand's most grueling trails as if it were a walk in the park. The Tararua ranges can be classed as the local stomping ground for Andrew, where he knows the place like the back of his hand, however the same can be said for most of the major regional parks in the country.
Beyond Andrews running passions, he also has a passion for coaching; passing on wisdom and experience to fellow lovers of the bush. Andrew has hosted a growing training group - https://runwellington.com for the last four years now, where he has coached and assisted in the development of these athletes, while also showing off some of the local bush and maintaining the value of running for these athletes.
