Hi ! I’m Lizzie and I compete Professionally for New Zealand in Xterra / Cross Triathlon. What’s that, you say? Cross Triathlon is swimming, mountain biking, and trail running – I love it because it’s an adventure into nature and I get to experience different terrains and cultures all around the World. The races are generally 2.5-3 hours but it really depends how hilly or muddy the course is! My background is running, having raced track, road races, and cross country. Currently I’m the New Zealand, Asia Pacific, and Asian Tour 2016 Xterra Champion, ranked 5th in the World for Xterra, and part of the Aloha Racing Team.

Having studied a Bachelor of Food Technology with Honours, I enjoy working part time in the Food industry – it keeps me out of trouble and helps fund my travels. Apart from Triathlon I also enjoy baking, shopping, movies, outdoor adventures, wine and coffee!!!

I use Leppin products daily as part of my training routine. Specifically Enduro Booster and Squeezy gels during training, and Endurance Athlete post exercise. There are a wide range of flavours available which I switch up for variety. Competing as an Elite athlete it’s important to have clean high quality product, I have full confidence in LeppinSport – it’s also awesomely New Zealand made.
