Meet Runderwear Ambassador Raydi Cham. Raydi is an Indonesian ultra-trail runner based in Malaysia. He found his love of trail running initially through mountaineering and it’s now become the foundation of his active life and a huge part of his identity.

Aside from an active lifestyle, Raydi is also a full-time web developer and a designer, which involves having to often think of ideas, which he says running helps him to do daily. His main goal is to inspire new runners to try trail running as it’s such a passion of his, and to pass down his knowledge of trail running through his knowledge and experience. 

Raydi is taking on PDA in Val d'Aran by UTMB! More than 4,000 runners will go across the spectacular landscapes of the Val d’Aran (‘the essence of the Pyrenees’) on 7th July 2022. This event is part of the UTMB World Series Events which is a circuit of events that meets the highest quality of standards of UTMB and travels around the continents allowing runners to take part in the best trail running races anywhere in the world.

Raydi is taking on PDA which is a 55-kilometre race with 3,300 meters of elevation gain and 3,700 meters of elevation loss through Naut Aran’s mountains. The race reaches 2,6000m above sea level, where the National Park of ‘Aiguestortes i Estany de Sant Maurici’ takes centre stage making it a fast but demanding race. The race begins in the town on Salardú and finishes in Vielha. This will be Radyis’ first trip to Val d'Aran with his motivation for running this event being freedom! 

"Trail running is not just about being out in the trail but to be one with yourself and mother nature"- Raydi
