Simon & Jenni


” I prefer the longer races, none of this sprinting rubbish. ”

Another solid team coming from the Southern Hemisphere, especially with Simon having completed the Yukon 1000 before, they will have an idea of what to expect.


Both love the outdoors, adventures and have a lot of experience in races that require physical exertion + sleep deprivation.  Knowing how you work together with your partner is a key success factor of the Yukon 1000, especially after the euphoria of getting to the start line starts to wear off.   Jenni and Simon have competed in Godzone together – self-proclaimed as New Zealand’s premier adventure race.
