Our Team Mandate

We are a group of regular people and average runners that want to encourage, support, and inspire others in the running community to keep moving forward and reaching for your personal potential. 

You don't have to podium, be the fastest, a super athlete to race or be part of a race team.

 Our team members are regular runners with the same challenges as most runners out there, like you we work, have family's, and schedule our training in-between our life commitments.

Some of us are fast and some of us are not, all of us enjoy the challenge, have fun training together, supporting each other at events and receive great joy by supporting others.

We all start in the same place when it comes to running, so we get you...

Keep going and celebrate every step.



Michael is our team captain and has been racing for 7 years. Over the last 3 years he has branched out in to the Ultra seen and looking forward to a great season with his team mates.



Rob is the newest member of our team running his first 50km ultra at Slay the Dragon, following up with Brokenagan Backyard Ultra 1 month later running another first of 100km.

Rob is loving the team atmosphere running with and learning from his teammates 



Dawna is our team coach and has been Ultra racing for 20 years.
After being diagnosed with an auto-immune disease 2 years ago she is working her way back to full time training while hosting her own events, racing, and coaching.



Eric started his racing career a few short years back.
In that time Eric has become an accomplished racer not just at the ultra distances but everything from 5km to 125km.



With hard work and dedication Sharla raced her very 100km distance 2022, reaching the podium on her first try.

This season Sharla's commitment to her training is moving her forward to the podium positions again in 2023.



Brandy has come to us from a road running background racing 1/2 and marathon distances.
