Who we are
kunanyi Trail Series is operated by four people who are passionate about lutruwita/Tasmania, its nature, and its cultural and historical identity.
We are allies of the Tasmanian Aboriginal Community and acknowledge that kunanyi always was, and always will be Aboriginal land. We are privileged to tread on her paths and share in her beauty.
A connection to kunanyi runs deep through the veins of lutruwita. For us, it’s no different.
- Catherine may have only moved to nipaluna/Hobart a few years ago, but living on the Eastern Shore means she gets to watch, and be mesmerised by, the many moods of kunanyi.
- Growing up in nipaluna and spending more time outdoors than in, kunanyi has become a place for James to recharge and connect with nature. The smell of the rainforest and the sound of the wind through the gums gives him space to be present.
- Lincoln grew up in the foothills of kunanyi and for him, the mountain has been his playground – literally out his backdoor. He’s stoked to be home after 20 years away and has thrown himself into what’s now a passion: sharing the health benefits and amazing landscapes of kunanyi with the community.
- Nikki has spent most of her life in nipaluna and, for her, the sight of kunanyi has always symbolised home. There’s something very grounding about catching sight of the mountain out of the car or plane window and feeling that you’re exactly where you’re supposed to be.
As operators of kTS, our ethos centres around four key goals. We want to connect people with nature; encourage and harness respect and love for the environment; continue growing a passionate trail running community; and promote physical and mental wellbeing.
We hope to see you at the next event!
Catherine, James, Lincoln, and Nikki.
