TEAM ALTRA NZ - SAM
After growing up in Dunedin Sam McCutcheon is now based in the capital and has recently taken to the ultra-running scene. After a third place at the 2015 Kepler Challenge, Sam went on to win the 2016 Ultra-Easy (setting the course record) and more recently became the 2016 ANZ Skyrunning Champion after his win at the Buffalo Stampede in Victoria, Australia.
Sam is currently focusing on the Skyrunning World Championships which are being held in Spain later this year.
Outside of running Sam is partial to a good coffee and has been enjoying learning to spearfish (learning he says is the key word here).
