OUR AMBASSADORS

Dougal Allan

I’ve seen big differences from year to year using CurraNZ. I train my body through the full spectrum - slow energy training, tempo work, threshold stuff, VO2max – and I personally feel I’m more efficient at every level of output….I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again, CurraNZ is a game changer for me’Dougal Allan is our longest-standing Kiwi ambassador and a big name in the world of multisport. Having won New Zealand’s Coast to Coast race twice and podiumed nine times, Dougal is a veteran in multi-discipline races and has competed all over the world. A Southlander who is respected for his tenacity and perseverance, Dougal’s cycling prowess gained the attention of Emirates Team NZ who selected him for their team of Cyclors to power the New Zealand boat at the 2024 America’s Cup in Barcelona. Image Credit: Korupt Vision

Sam Harvey

Sam Harvey is an ultra-distance runner who recently exploded onto the Backyard Ultra scene in spectacular style, equalling the world record of 677km / 100 laps in five days when taking on the reigning USA and Australian record holders in Queenland in June 2023.The Backyard Ultra format is a ‘last man standing’ event where runners complete a 6.7km loop every hour until they can’t. There is only one winner and everyone else is counted as a DNF (Did Not Finish). This brutal ‘no consolation prize’ format attracts some of the toughest runners on the planet and most entrants compete to see how far they can run instead of some specific distance. ‘I have been super impressed with the results, mostly from the recovery perspective, but also due to the significantly reduced heart rate on my daily runs. Over the last two months, my average heart rate has dropped as much as 10 beats per minute without reducing my physical output. Super important when you are running 200+ km races! I have always been a very science-focused athlete, and with Curranz, the science is SOLID!’

Caitlin ‘Pip’ Fielder

‘I have been using Curranz for over 3 months now and believe I can truly feel the difference. It used to take me a long time to feel recovered after an effort or race, but by including CurraNZ in my recovery routine I noticed I was feeling a lot better within the first week post races. This was very evident after racing Zegama.It’s so convenient to take Curranz along to races and training camps, and by taking it before sessions, it’s really easy to incorporate into my everyday routine.‘I have a science background and reading the research and peer-reviewed studies shows the evidence backing up the claims. The fact that it is also Informed-Sport gives me a lot of confidence in taking the supplement.’Tarawera Ultra 50km Champion in 2020 and 2021, Pip is a fast-rising star of the trail running scene. The Kiwi competes in UTMB in Europe and is a regular podium finisher, with top-three finishes in races like the Mont Blanc 42km marathon (second in 2022). She was recently runner-up at Zegama (50km) and then went on to represent New Zealand at the World Mountain & Trail Running Championships, fishing 12th out of 114 participants.

Scotty Hawker

“CurraNZ has been a great find that has absolutely changed my capacity to do the work required and compete with the best. It’s shown me that my best days may be yet to come as a professional athlete.’

The professional trail and ultra athlete from Christchurch has tested his mettle amongst the world’s leading ultra-endurance runners over the years and podiumed on the world stage, finishing third at UTMB and second at CCC.

The 36-year-old ultra-marathoner staged a remarkable career revival in Europe and South America after adding our award-winning product to his supplement regime.

After observing US and New Zealand professional athletes Hayden Hawk, Ruth Croft, Dan Jones and Caitlin Fielder using our supplement in the lead-up to UTMB in September, Scotty followed suit - and his impressive career revival began."

David Haunschmidt

"I have been using CurraNZ as part of my toolbox to help with this. I’ve noticed a difference since taking these, particularly when training and racing around nights.I take very few supplements. When I do, because of my background, I approach this in the most analytical evidence-based way possible."I really like that the team at CurraNZ are all about this and are producing studies and attempting to provide quality data on its effects. I'm excited to follow their progress, ongoing research, and receive support for my training and racing."Emergency Room Doctor by day (and often by night) and an avid runner outside his working hours, David is a prolific winner of trail and ultra races across NZ, notably holding the course records for the 21km and 50km distances at Tarawera – and five other races. David resides in Wellington and is a regular in Xterra and Ironman to boot. David qualified for the World Ironman Championships at Kona in 2022 and competed despite a lingering injury preventing him from racing his best. An ex-pat from Scotland, blustery cold Wellington weather doesn’t bother him at all."

Jessica Campbell

Jess started running trails in 2018, progressed to Ultras in 2019 and placed 3rd in the national Mountain Running Champs. An effort that qualified her to represent NZ at the World Mountain and Trail Running Championships. Shortly after winning the 2023 Shotover Moonlight Mountain marathon (a ratified Sky Running event and her first major podium) Jess headed to Europe. Racing at altitude against strong European competition stoked the fire and provided the lead-up to placing 1st in the Crater Rim Ultra (80km) distance (doubling as the National Long Trail Championships). 

‘I started taking CurraNZ sometime at the beginning of 2023. The changes were really made evident when I ran out and opted to not restock a couple of weeks before the 3Peaks race. I felt worse than normal during that taper period and really struggled with muscle soreness and lack of flow during the race. It also took me longer to recover afterwards. I soon started taking CurraNZ again and my training and racing has noticeably improved. I definitely feel that CurraNZ helped me to be able to have quick turnarounds between races in Europe while still training and exploring in between and not get too burned out.’ 

Max Brown - Canoe Sprint

Max and his partner Kurt Imrie have been a power team for a number of years, placing fifth at the Tokyo Olympics and eighth at the 2019 Open World Cup K2 1000M event.Max is also a national champion in the K1 1,000m Kayak sprint and K2 1,000m, with Kurt narrowly beating him in the K1 in 2021. Honoured by Waikato University as ‘Sportsman of the Year’, 2021 was indeed a great year for this power paddler."I've been taking CurraNZ blackcurrants for a while now and feel like I am making really big gains in my performances and recovery. I like to take 2 tabs 2 hours before a big session or race."

Rachel Mayhew

Rachel is a pro with the paddle and an 11-time winner of the National Ocean Ski Championship title. Residing on the North Shore of Auckland where she trains around the Hauraki Gulf, Rachel has competed successfully abroad, winning the 2017 World Series Championship, placing third at the 2015 World Surfski Championship and winning the challenging Molokai Surfski World Championship twice.‘My partner actually introduced me to CurraNZ I started taking it 2 weeks prior to some major domestic races. I felt a huge benefit from taking CurraNZ with benefits such as reduced fatigue, I felt more energetic in my day to day and great for my immune system!’

Kath Kelly

An Otago girl who is not afraid of multi-day races that traverse the length and breadth of New Zealand, Kath is a veteran mountain bike racer, when she’s not artificially inseminating deer. She is also an impressive multisport athlete who has won some of the big iconic NZ races for her age category, including the 2018 Coast To Coast, Lake Hawea Epic, Goldrush and Red Bull Defiance. Feeling right at home hurtling down a steep track or twisting and turning on technical trails, Kath’s fantastic skill saw her triumph in Canada in July 2023 at the BC Bike Race - considered the 'Original Ultimate Singletrack Experience'.A full-throttle 7-day stage race over challenging terrain in the wilds of British Columbia, Kath won the 50+ age group category and finished 12th female overall amongst a group of elite riders. Always ready for an adventure, not many 50-year-olds can keep up with Kath on 2 wheels. “I have struggled with the longer multi-day races that go beyond four days and was looking for a product that could help me recover quicker and get me to the next level of racing.“I started taking CurraNZ felt instant results and am excited about the product - it has been a game changer for me.”
