DCR Episode 15 - Scotty Hawker
Kia Ora Whanau. At the end of 2017, Vibram trail athlete and Christchurch boy Scotty Hawker had every right to expect with continued hard work and focus that 2018 would be a year of stellar results. Having come 11th at UTMB and taken the victory at Ultra Trail Cape Town, Scotty was prepped and ready to go. Sometimes though, even the most well thought-out plans do not go exactly how we want and that has certainly been the case for Scotty in 2018. A string of injuries and stomach issues put a serious dent in his racing this year, including having to drop at UTMB with 20 miles to go whilst sitting in 5th place. Scotty and his family are back in his hometown of Christchurch for the next couple of months and we jumped at the opportunity to talk to him about his year and so much more. This is certainly an episode that running heads (and non running heads for that matter) will love as we were stoked as all get out to “go deep” with Scotty on a number of topics including as ever his Greatest Run Ever. Enjoy!!
