Adam Campbell – True Grit, Pure Passion – Massive Comeback

World Class Canadian Mountain and Ultra Runner, Adam Campbell suffered life-threatening injuries last October when he experienced a massive fall during an FKT attempt in Roger’s Pass, British Columbia. His brush with death and aftermath was so stark that those close to him can’t really understand how he is still alive, let alone not paralyzed. Go one step further, he is going to again take on the brutal Hardrock 100 Mile race with over 33, 000 ft of elevation gain in July. After featuring heavily a few times in this iconic mountain running event in the past and even coming close to winning it in a field that had Kilian Jornet his approach will be somewhat different and we are still blown away that this is on the cards and Adam is making massive gains towards this objective already.

We asked Adam some questions about what happened in that accident and what he is doing to get fit, health and ready again to take on some ambitious, super exciting and inspirational project. 

Warning: Your Inspiration-ometer will blow a gasket…

Michael Wardian – Consistency is Key

We had an exclusive chat to the ever-active yet ever-fast Michael Wardian about what he’s up to this year, and by the sounds of it, he has a stacked schedule as usual with a full year of racing ahead…. including Barkley Marathons!

Michael is the guy who ran 7 marathons, in 7 days on 7 different continents in an average time of 2:45 including the brutal Arctic Marathon on a snow-covered trail-like course. He also owns the world record for the fastest marathon dressed as Elvis in a time of 2:38. Mike is one of the most active racers out there among elites and last year raced close on 50 times, racking up some seriously impressive results on all surfaces in all corners of the globe.

Coming off a very successful Tarawera 100KM Ultra Trail in New Zealand just a couple weeks ago, this year looks to be no different. He chatted with us about his secret to racing so often and so successfully.
