Matthew Healy

Ultra Distance Trail Runner
Cape Town, South Africa
D.O.B: 19 May 1995


Having only taken up trail running in recent years and appearing on the elite trail running scene in early 2019, Matt has had somewhat of a meteoric rise in the sport. Prior to running, he played rugby at the Sharks Academy in KwaZulu-Natal. He prides himself on his ability to be extremely focused and disciplined, and believes consistency is the key to great results. Testament to this was his determination to craft a leaner version of himself by shredding 20kgs through working tirelessly to condition his body in order to handle the physical stresses that come with ultra running. In a discipline that traditionally requires years of conditioning, he has managed to taste real success in a relatively short amount of time.
