Turia Pitt: Born to run

Season 3, Ep. 46

Who remembers cross country at school? Who wishes they could forget?


Running is painful, sweaty and long, but it can also reap some serious benefits. Our girl Turia Pitt is one of those people who probably thrived during that 3km fun run, and continues to push the limits of physical endurance to this day.


In this episode you’ll hear about Turia’s childhood and how it fostered her love for physical challenges, her love story with husband Michael, the fire that changed the course of her life and her incredible work today.


So lace up your runners and tune in.
