ATHLETE OF THE WEEK/ GREGORY TRULOFF

Greg and I met as we were climbing up Mt Bogong, 40km into the Alpine challenge. I had less sweat on my fingers so was able to swipe open his phone to check the maps and see if we were heading in the right direction. Fortunately we were, and so the tradition continued on for the next 50 kilometres together! Sometimes Ultra running can get quite lonely out there, but we […]

ATHLETE OF THE WEEK/ LEE EDDISON

I was fortunate to meet Lee on my local Trail Arthurs Seat, from there we formed a great friendship. Every time we catch up for a run we have great conversations, usually about racing upcoming events, work and family. He’s a really friendly, genuine and hard working guy. Unlucky at times to miss races due to injury, through this has learnt the art of patience. A very handy tool for […]

How to survive 100 miles on the Australia’s Alpine challenge Course. This is my personal account on what worked for me in racing ‘Australia’s Hardest 100 miler’. I was lucky enough to have most things go to plan and had the chance to really enjoy the experience for what it was. It was without doubt the toughest, most challenging but rewarding run I have ever done. 6 major climbs with […]

ATHLETE OF THE WEEK / MIKE MANDERS

Mike and i met in the summer of 2015/16 training on the two bays ultra course. I liked the fact that i would see him run for longer than the group and still stick to his plan even when it was a 30 plus degree day out on the trail. Needless to say his top 10 performance that year in the Two bays ultra dictated and reflected how hard he […]
