We recently identified a need. A need for people to spend time in nature with friends and family. Without the pressure of racing. A need for family and friends to spend time together, to have fun and to be in nature. We created a way for people to be able to enjoy a weekend away where everyone is entertained. We search for new venues which offer everyone visiting a fun activity.
We are not a company that organize timed races. We do entertainment. We search for it and share it by inviting you along by creating great weekend packages at spectacular venues.
I am a passionate, life-loving, fun, and active person. I am Trail Reviewer, Life Coach, and Run Walk for life Franchisee. But most of all I am a keen runner who loves to explore new trails and to train for big goals.
My own running journey started in Feb 2016. Almost 7000km and several accomplishments, hard times, good times, hard work, fun, tears, and joys later, I am still going strong! I learned a lot. From the start of this journey, my then coach gave me hill sprints to do. So that might be where my nickname ‘Hillrunner’ originated. Yes, I am one of the rare species who love hills.
My biggest running achievement up to date is finishing SOX 3-day stage trail race in Aug 2019 (total 75km).
The time for me has come to share my love for nature and trails with others.
We always used this ‘digital signature’ of a gecko and a leaf on all our trail posts, so ‘GeckoLeaf Trails’ was born.
Let’s Explore, Review, and Share!
When I’m not running I’m an attorney by day and an amateur photographer by “night”.
In 2017 I started running with my best friend, training for my very first race. Since then I haven’t looked back. I always look for the random adventure and have completed various road runs, trail runs and stage runs, the furthest being the Wildcoastwildrun (112km over three days) with great people.
No downhill scares me, wish I could say the same about uphills, but them too I will conquer (eventually).
To me, trails is what are best described with the Costa Rican phrase “puravida” which directly translates into pure life because trails is the purest form of life.
- We give you the playground so that you can create your own stage runs, hikes, or cycles.
- No start times, no cut-off times.
- We do not time your activity. You go out on safe, marked routes on your own time and with your own crowd without the pressure of racing.
- We give gifts, not medals.
- You carry your own supplies and hydration, but there will always be support and visits form GL crew members on the trails.
In return, we’ll make sure the venue gets exposure.
