60 Second Q&A with FEREI Ambassador Angus Sak
Posted on June 08 2017
Say hello to Angus Sak who has successfully made the transition from triathlons to trail running. With some great performances already at the 100K distance as well as MDS, he's already looking for the next challenge!
I am a Hong Konger, I was born and am living in Hong Kong!
I am a triathlon coach. Four years ago, I got to know Ida Lee (9 Times Hong Kong Trailwalkers Champion in Female, Open and Mixed category) because I coached her in cycling. And she recommended me to have some trail running with her, my answer was why not!
MDS (Marathon Des Sable) 7 Days 250km Desert Race is my favourite race so far. Stunning landscape and scenery. The best place to test my limit. I always say "One Life One MDS"!
I heard that Badwater 216km race is the toughest race on Earth. I hope I can go in my lifetime.
2017 Oxfam Korea Trailwalker overall Champion and Mixed Team Champion
2016 UTMB-CCC101km, stunning scenery. I'm looking forward to UTMB 170km this year.
Start slow and short distance, build up step by step, otherwise you will easily get injured. Enjoy the beautiful scenery and know about each mountain for her character.
With more overseas race experience, now I can't rely on local Chinese food. I started to use Tailwind for nutrients recently and I find it helps me to refuel energy faster and also the taste is good.
