Hot on the heels of a strong DSV performance in the recently completed sani2C mountain bike race, our Port Elizabeth Training Specialist Tracey Campbell flies the DSV flag in Expedition Africa Namaqua West Coast, a 500km adventure race involving mountain biking, trail running and paddling.
Tracey is part of a team of four and they have five days to complete the distance with only a map and compass to guide them – and as you guessed, sleep is kept to a minimum as the teams try and get through the course as quickly as possible.
Tracey’s involvement in the Castle Lite Adventure Team underlines just how seriously many at DSV are taking the DSV Active drive, which encourages everyone at DSV to realise the importance of exercise to physical health. We believe that healthy bodies and healthy minds make for a healthy company and are happy to say that more and more of us are taking up one sport or another!
Tracey joined DSV in 2007 and has always balanced her work with healthy eating and exercise, which includes trail running and road running, mountain biking and road cycling, triathlons, paddling (K1, K2 and Surfski), and adventure racing. Her races are dominated by top three finishes, including 12 victories.
“Without the support of DSV I would not have been able to take my sport to the next level. My results prove that with the support from work, family and friends dreams can become a reality”, she says.
In addition to competing, Tracey is a qualified professional personal trainer, fitness instructor, spinning instructor, has an OD ETDP Qualification and is a qualified Nutritional Therapist (The Health Sciences Academy).
The race starts on 18 May 2018, and you can follow Tracey on:
