Kim van Kets

Kim has been running for more than half her life; plus paddling and cycling for many years. Her ‘Tri the Beloved Country’ expedition saw her running (3200km), biking (3030km) and paddling (600km) around South Africa over five months. Her route took her from her home in East London, to the Mocambique border, across to the Northern Cape, down the Orange River to the coast and back to East London via Cape Town. And if you recognise her surname, yes, Kim is married to trans-Atlantic rower Peter van Kets, who has been on FEAT’s stage previously.
