Kirstie Rae is a 17-year-old Cross Country Runner and the newest addition to the Support 4 Sport Team. Kirstie runs competitively during the athletics, road racing and cross-country seasons for Wellington Harrier Athletic Club and Wellington East Girls’ College. Kirstie said she is very excited to be selected as an S4S athlete as she believes this partnership will help her become a greater athlete both physically and mentally.
Kirstie tells us that she feels most inspired by her outstanding training group and her coach Alastair Leslie. When asked about her sporting goals for 2019, Kirstie said she is committed to lowering her personal best (PB) times during the track season and is eager to represent New Zealand again. Like so many of our athletes, the feeling of wearing the silver fern is a tremendous goal that unites Kiwis from all walks of life. We look forward to supporting Kirstie on her journey and wish her the best of luck in the 2019 season.
