I created the Leopard Loop Challenge as an initially entire personal challenge for myself to both set myself a post-op recovery goal and to celebrate one year after my cervical spinal operation. I did not think I would ever run a PB again. I had run Leopard Loop before and had a Strava time from 2015 and decided that I would see how close I could get to that time. I managed a good time in 2019 and grabbed a couple of new PBs and new PBs in 2020. I’m looking forward to more PBs in 2021.

I would love to have you join me in the challenge and also in doing so support The Goldilocks and The Bear Foundation – a NPO that provides early stage assessment and intervention (through a network of volunteers) for children struggling with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) in disadvantaged communities.
