Introducing Taye Pugh. We love having Taye promoting our events as he's local to Canterbury, super passionate about all things related to running, and is a genuinely great guy. He's always up for a chat at events or online about the trails, tailwind, and training. And he's full of great tips too having had so much experience at events all over NZ.
Taye has been running since his mid 30's and loves the simplistic nature of it - just head out by yourself (or with friends) on a mountain trail and that's all you need. He says 'the more you run and challenge yourself the more confidence it gives you to explore new trails'.

Introducing Alice Brice. Alice is a wonderful ambassador who keeps everyone smiling and having a good time. Alice has an infectious love of trail running that she shares openly with everyone around her. She evens runs monthly trail running adventures in South Canterbury!
Alice has been running since she was 23 years old and loves getting out on the trails because they are her 'happy place'. She loves the euphoria that comes over you when you are exercising in nature. Alice encourages runners and hikers alike to find the magic in the views, the challenge and the escape from reality, that the trails bring. Pure magic!

Introducing Josie Dixon. Josie caught the trail-running-bug 2 years ago and hasn’t been able to stop since. She is all about getting up into the mountains for an epic day (or two!) out in the sunshine.
Whether she’s climbing Mt Oxford in horizontal rain, or soaking up the stunning views of Lake Tekapo from the summit of Mt John, Josie is always “lovin it!”.
She has an affinity for the outdoors and lives for the challenges each new adventure presents.
Josie loves making new friends and is always keen for an adventure, so let her know if you’d like a new running buddy!

Introducing Bartosz Morawiec. Bartosz was born in Poland and moved to NZ in 2012. He has been officially a 'kiwi' since 2017.
He started running 4 years ago after never really running before. His real passion for running exploded after discovering trail running around Canterbury. His favourite running spots are Abel Tasman Coastal Track, Paparoa Track, and our lovely local trails around Mt Oxford, Mt Richardson and Mt Grey.
Running has become a way of life and an amazing way to meet new people, creating friendships for life, as well as a way to discover our beautiful Aotearoa.
