How I survived running 3000 kilometres across India

Samantha Gash

Sam was the first woman and the youngest person to complete four 250km ultra marathons in the driest, windiest, hottest and coldest deserts on Earth - and all in one year. She ran 3000 kilometres from the West to the East of India. To say she pushed herself beyond her physical limits would be an understatement. So how did she do it, and why? What happens to us when we push ourselves beyond our absolute physical and mental limits?  The ultimate multi hyphenate; endurance athlete / inspirational speaker / author / social impact entrepreneur / World Vision and Royal Flying Doctor Service Ambassador / Mother. Regularly running over 200km in a race and raising money for causes close to her heart, Samantha was also the youngest person and first woman at the time to complete the 4 Deserts Grand Slam.
