Watch Ultra Trail Runner Ryan Sandes talk about his inspiration.

Cape Town - The chosen occupation of ultra trail racing is one that requires total dedication and energy from those that get involved.

Ryan Sandes manages to tap into the inspiration that his surroundings provide. The Rocky Mountains energise him to keep the hunger as well as the passion needed to take on the challenges of running so many kilometres in the forests, around the magnificent lakes, and up-and-over the imposing, but tantalising mountain tops.

Sandes takes some time out to chat about his inspiration ahead of the Leadville 100 Miler on Saturday, August 17.
