    Event description

    Are you an aspiring endurance runner? Did you enter a race that is now approaching at an alarming rate? Or do you simply want to know why someone would put themselves through hell?!?

    Well you're in luck! 

    Fresh off the Ultra-Trail Kosciuszko, we've locked in our dear friend Brad Harris to spill all his hard-earned wisdom when it comes to everything endurance running. You'll be hearing first-hand knowledge from a dude with over a dozen ultras under his belt!

    Some topics he'll cover on the night:

    • Is ultra distance for you?
    • Training, coaching, strength
    • Gear choices
    • Injury prevention and foot care
    • Nutrition and hydration
    • Race prep
    • Q&A

    So bring all your burning questions, worries, fears and HYPE to this amazing event, and get inspired to hit the trails for many, many, many kilometers.

    About Brad:

    Brad is a dad to four beautiful girls, who - after 20 years of a sedentary and very unhealthy lifestyle - made the decision to get healthy and fit.

    "Starting out with no major goals in mind, I soon found an enjoyment in the suffering and passion for endurance sports. I quickly ramped up my training over the course of one year from running my first ever 5k in 2019, to finding a coach and completing my first ever 100km ultra marathon under goal time in early 2020. A dozen or so ultra marathons followed (furthest to date being a 100 miler) amongst periods of injury and recovery, learning to swim and completing triathlons up to 70.3 distance, and discovering a love for hiking and time out in the wilderness.

    I've made plenty of mistakes to learn from along the way, overcome depression, and have had some incredible experiences. I want to encourage anyone who think they might like to try out endurance sports of any kind, to come along and find out how welcoming and supportive this community really is."
