My Life As… An Ultra-Marathon Runner – Samantha Gash


Imagine running for 77 days and covering a lazy 3,800 km. They just don’t make protein shakes for that kind of thing. It’s the stuff of nightmares for most people.

But that is exactly the journey that young Aussie Samantha Gash has embarked on. The lawyer has thrown away the books to become an ultra-marathon runner. But for Sam it’s not about the numbers, the statistics or the kilometres covered, it’s about making a difference.

Samantha is running across India to support children’s education. Challenging people to virtually run or walk alongside her journey and raise funds for the communities she engages with.

Join us as we go behind the scenes with the unstoppable Sam while she breaks down the barriers preventing children in India from accessing a quality education.
