It’s Official – TORQ Trail Team

TQ_Trail_Facebook_headerWow… So it’s officially out in the open… I will be running for the TORQ Trail Team in 2013..! To say I’m excited is a slight understatement! I’ve known for several days, but have been under an embargo not to tell a soul…

“If anyone knows what effort and achievement look like, it is Reuben. Because aside from being a trail runner, Reuben is an action and lifestyle sports photographer. His job takes him around the world to capture the moments when people achieve what they never thought possible and more. 

But Reuben also excels on the other side of the lens, as a lifelong runner who discovered the trails early on…

To be chosen for the team is a massive honour and I can’t wait to meet with the other team members, to race together and share running stories. Although I’ve largely been lost for words over the last few days, I’m sure that will change.

Profil-CCC-2012First things first, as with any team we need to get to know each other so we can learn from each others strengths and weaknesses, so next month we are heading out to Chamonix for a training weekend running the 100km UTMB – CCC (Courmayeur Champex Chamonix) course. With over 19,500 feet of altitude gain, this should be perfect preparation for the UTMB -TDS which I have coming up in August.

I will be bringing you updates of my experiences running and training with the TORQ Team here. Now I’m off to go and get muddy…
