08 - Tatum Prins: The adventure of a lifetime

August 27th 2018

In this episode, we are joined by Tatum Prins, a world-renowned endurance and adventure racing athlete. 

Tatum was one of, if not the top female athletes in her field, competing in some of the toughest events we have ever heard of. 

She has since co-founded Mountain Runner, an events company that promotes a healthy and active lifestyle while enjoying the awe-inspiring scenery that South African trails have to offer.

Her career has taken her all over the world. Tatum’s story is one of triumph over tremendous obstacles.

Show notes:

Turning points (08:00 – 09:45)

Sleep Monster (18:40 – 20:00)

Living in the moment (32:40 – 33:45)

Spreading yourself too thin (44:30 – 45:00)


Timbavati Game Lodge (06:00 – 07:00)

SUP 11-City Tour (47:50 – 48:30)

Mountain Runner (49:00 – 50:00)

Physically she has endured things we couldn’t possibly fathom, like a non-stop 410 km trail race, while she has also had to balance the inevitable routine of a domestic lifestyle since giving up racing full time. 

We were genuinely moved by Tatum’s achievements and radical experiences as well her honesty when sharing her more challenging moments.
