Meet: Bodil Oudshoorn
In it for: Exploring new trails!
Favourite running route: Our two-day Stockport to Sheffield route
Most boggy moment: On one of our 2017 recces we ended up running on Bleaklow on a Friday night at 2am. With snow covering the ground (but not freezing it..) and a head torch which ran out of batteries I could not see any of the bogs coming!
Running goals: Together with BogBeauty Lisa I have just ran the 2019 Dragon’s Back Race. I am always keen for unique, new challenges such as running the Zion traverse in Utah (49 miles), unsupported. In the long term, I would like to try running 100 miles. I reckon the lack of sleep will give this type of ultra a completely different dimension. In the meanwhile, I hope to run as many long-distance trails as I can! I loved run-camping the Tour du Mont Blanc, and will definitely be back in the Alps for a similar adventure.
About: Bodil works at the British fell running brand inov-8 as the footwear product manager. She has a PhD in Sports Engineering, focussing on studded footwear. Her love for running shoes is now translated into developing the grippiest shoes for our outdoor adventures!
