INTRODUCING SARAH JENKINS, ENDURANCE ATHLETE.
Originally from a small town in the North Island and was once a city-loving shopaholic kind of gal that disliked the outdoors.
However, a three-week stint at Outward Bound in 2012 turned out to be the most pivotal moment where I found my true passion for the outdoors.
It's fair to say you won't find me near a shopping mall these days (unless it's sports-related).
Multisport racing only began about five years ago, and adventure racing more recently in the last three years. I was a national-level Gymnast and an avid CrossFit athlete before discovering the world of adventure and multisport racing.
I may only measure in at 5 feet, don't be fooled by my lack of height; I think I make up for it in determination and Grit.
Some achievements include:
Coast to Coast Longest Day – 3rd Open Women 2022
Spring Challenge – 3rd 9hr Team 2021
Peak to Peak - Female Tandem Team winners 2019
