Nat Heath - 2012 squad

28 year old Nat Heath grew up in Newcastle before making the move to Sydney to work for the Australian Indigenous Mentoring Experience. When we first met Nat, he was heavily involved in rugby and triathlon, but hadn’t done a lot of distance running. Nat quickly adapted to the long distances required to train for a marathon, and consistently improved in every event he took part in.

Nat was part of the IMP squad to travel to New York before the cancellation of the New York Marathon in November 2012.

Despite the set-back, Nat continued training and in February this year, he finished the Tokyo Marathon in just over three hours.

Nat now mentors 2013 squad member Carla Snow, who is also from Newcastle. Since the marathon, Nat has continued with his running, running a personal best time of 81 minutes in the Gold Coast half-marathon in July. He is now busy preparing for the Port Macquarie half-ironman cominb up later this month.
