You could say Obstacle Racing and my own competitive resurgence go hand in hand, a young sport which demands from its competitors an all-round dynamic of athletic abilities, no one strength will get you to the finish line. The appeal for me is endless; specialising in the endurance races has become a journey of pushing my body and mind to places where in the past I dare not venture. My training methodology is simple, push until there is no more room to push, and once there, find more room to push. Finding a way when there is none pretty much sums up what Obstacle Endurance racing is for me. This year’s goals have been all around becoming stronger and pushing my body further, after a top 10 finish at last year’s World’s Toughest Mudder I can appreciate that with another year of solid training, ultra-running and obstacle racing I will go back stronger. With the Australian Obstacle Endurance titles in August I hope to achieve strong results that will spring board my chances at making the Australian Team bound to take out this year’s World’s Toughest Mudder. This years journey has already taken me to a Ultra Skyrunning event, and soon a North Face 100, coupled with a 100 miler and the year has me poised to be in peak condition come the business end of the season.

Louise Clifton

Londoner turned mountain lover, climber turned trail runner... I caught the trail running bug in 2015 when I had a finger injury and climbing mountains has now been replaced by running them! I love the simplicity of running. Having grown up in London, I pinch myself every day when I take in the beautiful place I live (the Blue Mountains) and the awesome people I have met through running and climbing. I love ultras, challenging and unique courses, hills and mountains. You can follow me here, here and here.

Majell Backhausen

In a simple explanation- I explore a lot, I challenge myself and I enjoy it. 
I do the majority of this moving under my own power, physically and mentally. Mostly it’s running (and hiking, steep ass Mountains), this allows exploration with minimal impact, on the world we live in, which is really important.

In 2011 I shook my head thinking about covering 100 miles by foot, then 3 years later I was lucky enough to experience how it is possible and damn amazing to achieve such goals. I have been given the opportunity to represent Australia at a World Championship and this is now further motivation to keep me healthy and switched on.


A big part of this running adventure and its teachings relates to self and the ability to learn how to listen to your body. No one else can have the relationship you have with your mind, body and spirit. So respect it, challenge it, keep it healthy and keep it active.


If you have a goal. Write it down and achieve it. If you need inspiration, advice or guidance,  give me a shout. Learn how to explore and your adventure will never end. Learn from others and take inspiration from everyone. Share in my journey on my blog page

Loren Lane

Coming from a running background I moved into triathlon at the end of 2014 and have not looked back. I have fallen in love with endurance triathlon both Ironman 70.3 and Ironman because of  the mental, physical and emotional battles you need to overcome in training in order to get to the start line. Pushing my body to the absolute limit and seeing the transformation in it motivates me to keep going. In two years I have gone from not being able to cycle over 30km or swim more than 500m to completing an Ironman in under 11 hours 30 minutes coming second in my age group. I live by 'Train Hard Race Easy', race day should be the victory lap for all the sacrifices made to get to the start line

Anthony Gordon

I am a Brisbane born and bred adventure enthusiasts. I have been very much into sports and athletics since my junior years. It’s only been in the past couple of years I have really got back into my running completing my first marathon at the Gold Coast in 2017 then backing it up 2018, then my first trail ultra at coastal high 50 in 2018. This year is looking bigger and better with UTA100 in May, BTU 60km in July and another return to coastal high 50 in September with no doubt a few scattered in between.

Liliana McLennan

I have just turned 15 and love racing on my bikes, both on the track and road. I have won numerous Queensland State Titles and am the current State Record holder of the Under 15 2km Individual Pursuit (Outdoor). My ultimate goals are to represent Australia at the Olympics and World Titles, and to ride professionally in Europe. I have experienced issues with vomiting during endurance races due to an inability to produce sufficient saliva. My nutritionist recommended trying Tailwind as a solution to this issue. I first used Tailwind earlier this year leading into the Queensland Junior Road Titles. Competing in the 70km Road Race, 14km Time Trial and the Criterium at State Titles, Tailwind kept my body hydrated and fuelled, and aided my production of saliva resulting in no vomiting and allowing me to maximise my performances and finish races feeling great.

Matthew Baker

I’m a 24 year old who lives on the Northern NSW coast and simply put, I love to run.  While there’s a bit more purpose behind it these days than when I first started back at University (mainly as a way to avoid studying), the main idea is still there; throw on some shoes and enjoy yourself. Rain or shine, the steeper the better! Half the year sees me racing both on and off road running events from 10km to ultra, the other half getting on a bike and racing Duathlon.

Ben Clark

I stumbled into Trail running in 2012 after entering my first event just to see what the "Trail Running" hype was all about. Apart from the fact I had an absolute ball on course, the running 3rd overall probably buoyed the interest as well. From there I gradually increased the distance of events into the world of Ultras to see what I was capable of & to challenge my limits. To this day I still like to choose events that both scare me, but will also continue the challenge me & push those personal limits. What I've come to love the most about the Trail & Ultra scene, is the incredibly grounded & supportive people the sport attracts - from the top elites all the way to the beginners. I've got a real a fondness of running around the Victorian mountains, and really enjoy those runs & races that take me into parts of the world that so very few will ever experience.

Dane Roberts


Currently living in beautiful far north Western Australia training for Kona. I’ve been competing in triathlons for the past four years and fell in love with the sport after my first race. I’ve worked extremely hard to achieve my personal goals in the sport but will face the ultimate challenge in Hawaii in a few months. My love for adventure has led me to live in the pristine, yet harsh environment of The East Kimberley region. Training in such high, intense heat has made me realise the importance of the correct nutritional balance. Without a doubt, Tailwind has been my go to sustenance for the last few years and I truly feel it will be the reason I perform well on the big island in October. “

Michelle Lamb

 I started running about three years ago in 2015. We lived in a small country town of Wandoan then moved to Miles. I found running helped a lot to conbat depression and to get out around the town when i was lonely. When I first started running i didnt get out to events as my husband worked away a lot in the mines.So I joined a lot of virtual running events where I become apart of online running community. Ialso made a lot of online friends. I also become a part of Running Mums Australia. In Miles I also become a part of Relay For Life. I was part of the committee and also a Team Captain.Our team raised money for relay for Life and it was a great event.. I was very proud to be a a part of such a worth while cause. I am also a part of the park run running community. I run parkrun and also volunteer

Sarah Tremont

 have been surrounded by outdoor recreation oriented activities that my family and friends have done for my whole life. These have included ultra running, bushwalking, abseiling, orienteering, kayaking and mountain biking. I really started to not just be surrounded by, but enjoy, outdoor recreation activities when I started the Duke Of Edinburgh’s Award (which I did through school) at the start of 2015. 

I began to love running not long after that with encouragement from Dad and by going to Parkrun in Armidale. Since I started Parkrun in 2015, I have been going to that very consistently and achieved my 50th run in 2017 and my 100th in April this year. When I first started Parkrun in 2015 my time was 32:14 and currently my PB, which I achieved on the 30th of June 2018 is 24:04. I also participated in weekly winter cross country runs organised by Armidale Athletics from the age of 4-11 years. After a bit of a break from that I have returned to cross country this year and I run the 5km distance there and have significantly improved my time.
