Justin is an ultra runner that began running 12 years ago in his early middle age (at 32 years old). Stressed, overweight and unfit, Justin decided with wife Sharon that running would be the easiest way to improve health and fitness.
Justin's achievements include:
Australian 6 days walking record (572km)
Centurion status in all official world events (walking 100 miles in under 24 hours in Australia, New Zealand, UK, USA, Netherlands and South Africa).
PB’s of 217km (24 hour), 8:35 (100km), 3:45 (50km), 2:55 (marathon), 39:17 (10km).
Sharon is what she terms as an ‘accidental’ ultra-runner.
Her journey started in 2008 with a ‘health kick’, with the goal of losing weight and taking charge of life.
Since then, Sharon managed to set Australian Age Group records and Australian records in ultra-distance running (any distance over a marathon) where speed is no longer the key component though perseverance absolutely required.
Lisa is a mum of 3 who started running to find time for herself. She loves running on trails in the Warbys and has completed several Ultra Marathons. Running has given Lisa an opportunity to achieve big dreams, grow, learn and inspire her children.
Josie started running in her teenage years. Running with friends and keeping fit while also going to the gym was her favourite.
In more recent years Josie’s running has become more frequent and more enjoyable by entering in lots of running events at different locations and completing different distances.
Half marathons are Josie’s favourite event as they are a good distance to train for keep you running regularly. Josie is aiming to one day complete her first full marathon.
During a battle with an Anxiety Disorder Patrick decided to start exercising after a long hiatus. Running enabled him to set his own schedule and push limits at his own pace.
With two marathons under his belt and a handful of trail halves, Patrick is hungry for more.
