Hollie Woodhouse
The Adventurous Kiwi

Eight years ago, I made a pact with myself to do one big adventure each year that challenged me, resulting in some epic experiences including New Zealand’s Coast to Coast, ultra-marathons across Morocco’s Sahara Desert and through Peru’s Amazon jungle and Nordic skiing across the Greenland ice cap. An ordinary rural kiwi girl with a passion for design, I have managed to create a life that while at times has pushed me to my mental and physical edge and tested my attitude and self-belief, is one that I wouldn’t have any other way.

I love to adventure to test myself and experience the moments that come from the unknown. Over time I’ve discovered that being in the outdoors fills my cup like nothing else; fresh air, nature, great friends and beautiful landscapes.

Jen Halliday
FurtherFaster Ambassador 

I was never particularly sporty but started running with my then new partner Jacob when we 1st started dating. At this point I couldn’t run more than 1km. Then I did a 10km, a 18km and then leapt to 50kms and the rest is history!

I love to adventure to clear my head, see our beautiful country and hang out with my mates.
