Chantel Nienaber

Chantel Nienaber
South Africa

Chantel Nienaber stormed onto the trail running scene in 2011, and quickly became know as 'hot pants' for her bold attire!  The slogan on her running 'shorts' read 'No chance' and so it was.  Chantel set the overall ladies record in the Wildcoast Wildrun in 2011 at 11:31:30.  Despite this she only holds the day record for the 35km day 2 (2011 - 3:18:13), with the 44km day 1 record still being held by Jacoline Haasbroek (2011 - 4:25:43) and the 34km day 3 by Silvie Sherzinger (2013 - 3:33:10).  However consistency counts and nothing proves this more than Chantel's record.

Chantel is also the only female runner in Wildrun history to have won both the Wildcoast and Lesotho Wildruns proving her depth in both technical and open terrain.

Chantel hails from Knysna in South Africa.
