Heather Gordon is a Vegan ultra runner. Her first race was the 4 Deserts Atacama (Chile) Crossing 2017; a 250km, 7 day, self-supported desert race. Runners must carry all their own equipment and food and are only provided with drinking water and a place in a tent each night to rest! Heather finished 2nd in the U30 age category.
In 2018 Heather competed in Ultra Africa; a 220km self-supported endurance race in Mozambique, where she finished as 2nd placed Lady and Top 5 overall. This year 2019, Heather is focusing her attention on building her experience in one day ultras and has recently returned from Italy where she placed 8th Lady overall & 2nd in her age category in the Gran Trail Courmayeur 55km race in The Alps.
Heather is also currently studying T Colin Campbell’s Cornell course in Plant-Based Nutrition.
