To celebrate World Vision’s 50th anniversary, Samantha Gash, 31, ultra marathon runner from Melbourne, is planning to undertake a gruelling run across the diverse terrain of India.

 

 

Kicking off on Monday 22 August, Samantha will run close to 4,000 km from West to East to raise money and awareness for World Vision projects tackling barriers to quality education.

In India today, 4 per cent of children never start school, 58 per cent don’t complete primary school, and 90 per cent fail to finish high school. Combined with the fact that 67.7 million India youths are living on less than one dollar a day, the barriers to accessing education are highly complex. 

Only a few people have run across India’s landscapes, but Samantha is not one to shy away from challenges. With many achievements to her name, including being the youngest female to complete ‘4 Deserts Grand Slam’ (running across the deserts of Chile, Antarctica, China and the Sahara) and being the youngest Australian woman to run across the Simpson Desert in 2012, there’s only one thing in mind. 

“It’s the longest run that I have ever undertaken…however, I know from experience that you can never plan for everything,” she says.

“A real highlight for me will be meeting the people and visiting the communities along the way that are engaged with World Vision. Although training is taking up most of my time and headspace, the reason that drives me is the ‘why’. Everytime I train I visualise myself in India and I know that any discomfort I could possibly experience will pale in comparison to many of the situations I will see.”

She’s also inviting her other runners across Australia to run with her in the World Vision 12-week Challenge, where you can track distances against Samantha’s.

Not sure what to eat pre-workout? Gear up for a solid workout with this banana protein smoothie recipe.

 

The glass: Banana smoothie made with slow-releasing protein

The rules: Use casein in place of the more common whey as it digests slowly, delivering a consistent supply of amino acids during a workout according to dietitian Dr McMillan. Include carbohydrate to increase available energy and enable maximum intensity.

The foods: Banana supplies ready energy to facilitate maximum intensity while natural yoghurt and skim milk provide protein and carbs. Honey is essentially sugar, so give it a miss if you find the fruit flavour sweet enough.

What you’ll need:

1 ripe banana
1 cup your choice of milk
1 cup plain natural yoghurt
1 tbsp honey
1 tsp of ground cinnamon
