SAMANTHA GASH | Endurance Athlete & Inspirational Speaker

dedication, endurance and a little bit mad

Australian Samantha Gash started running as a break from studying law. Little did she know those small steps would turn into a journey that has seen her run over 20,000km across every continent on Earth, and raise approximately $300,000 for charity while advocating for women’s empowerment, social change and access to education.

Samantha has been twice recognised as a finalist in the Women’s Agenda Leadership Awards. She has been selected as a delegate for the Australia India Youth Dialogue, and was also nominated for a Pride of Australia Medal. She is an ambassador for World Vision and the Royal Flying Doctor Service, using her platform to bring awareness to these causes. She was a competitor on the TV show Survivor where she met her partner Mark Wales. They welcomed Harry, their first child, in 2018.

Her memoirs, through publishers Macmillan in New York City and documentary feature Run India, are due for release in 2019.
