    Good Workawayer

  • Description

    My name is Ruud Kappert, I am 27 years old and born in The Netherlands. I’m a trailrunner. Running true nature is what I love to do. I have been training hard for 2 years or so, and feel kind of stuck. I would like to wake up and look at nature, drink a cup of coffee, put on my running shoes and just go. Out for another adventure. Be closer to the mountains and nature than I am in the Netherlands, that is what I really need and want for my training.
    I have loved travelling for years now and have found that working while doing so gives you so much in return. My time around the world has shown to me the veracity of the admittedly clichéd idea that the more one puts into travel, the more one gets out of it.
    So that's why I am on workaway. To train, to connect with all the lovely people out there, and just to be in a beautiful place for some time to come!

    I have a running race in Falls Creek 25 November. After that I am directly availible and looking for a nice place to be, work, train and connect. Again, I am willing to do allot of work, and prefer to be close to nature.
    I hope to see you soon!
