Gareth Mate

“My name is Gareth, I’m English, but live in the Netherlands.

I have always loved sport and continually enjoyed being outdoors. Sport and the outdoors provides a hobby and a release from the daily grind and demands of working life.

It regulates my mind, makes me happy and can de-stress my body and mind.

It provides me with the challenges in life I need and hopefully allows me to inspire others to get outdoors and share their passion too!

I cycle 52 km to work daily, run regularly. I helped others to set up and run Parkrun in Rotterdam and love to hike mountain trails whenever and wherever I can.

In the past I have run many marathons, competed in triathlon events and played a variety of team sports at a good level.

I write through my website all about the outdoors and actively encourage others to follow my lead and use the outdoors as a learning tool and a way fulfilling and more enriched lifestyle.

I have the philosophy of doing as much as I can while I can. Making the most of my days and living life to the full.”
