I’m Lara, an Australian Distance Runner, Producer/Vocalist, and Digital Growth Hacker. I’m a UESCA Certified Ultramarathon/Trail Running Coach.
I grew up in Australia where I found a passion for trail running whilst training as a nordic/XC skier, and am currently based in Colorado, USA. I was on the Boise State University Track/XC Team 2019-21′
Sage Burner Trail Race (Mad Moose Events) – Gunnison, Colorado
My nordic skiing background opened up the world of trail running and my love for mountains and forests. Whilst I enjoy the speed of the track, as I venture further in life I have found myself returning back to trail-based sports. This is where my focus lies.
I’m so lucky to have traveled all around the world for both sport and adventure and hope to share my lessons, learnings, and experiences on this digital platform.

I’m in the process of creating more free resources for fun to share with the outdoor community. I want to make an active impact on athlete climate education and sustainable outdoor practices. One way I can assist in the digital world is to make athlete climate sustainability resources.
