Warren Evans​

Assistant Tour Leader / Guide

His sports experience and achievements make him one of the most motivating coaches you’ll ever find. He has swum, run and biked through Ironman distance triathlons around the globe, run crazy distances in ultra races such as the North Face 100 (yep that’s 100kms!), cycled across most of the southern cape of South Africa in the Cape Epic 8-day mountain bike event, and if you added up the mileage he covers in one year on foot or two wheels it would make you dizzy!

All of Warren’s achievements have been self-coached. His knowledge of how to train smarter, not harder, to gain the maximum results has developed over 20 years of endurance sport experience, through interaction with other athletes, coaches, and intensive study of industry professionals.
