There's a new podcast in town called Endurance FM and one of the first guests is Kusaga Athletic co-founder Graham Ross. The podcast combines in-depth personal stories of people who live the endurance life - both sport and business.
Endurance FM said;
"Is someone who gets off on 270km motor bike racing, Ironman triathlon or the Great Wall Marathon wired differently? Or is he just comfortable living outside a normal person's comfort zone? Whether completing 13 Ironman races or building successful businesses, Co-Founder of Kusaga Athletic, Graham Ross constantly pushes beyond his own comfort zone in the quest for new adventures."

Hawaii isn’t all beaches and coconut mojitos, it’s also the home of one of the world’s toughest multi-day run events. The Mauna to Mauna is a self supported (yep!) 7 day, 6 stage, 250km race across the big island of Hawaii. If that’s not tough enough, competitors had to cross 11 of the 13 climatic regions of the world from rugged lava to sandy beaches and open grassland...There was also a lot of rain.
Kusaga Athletic athlete Phillip Dernee was one of nutters to tackle this event, winning his age group and 10th overall...we asked him what drew him to this monster of an event?
If you are taking on the 10th anniversary of the UTA 100, you want everything to be perfect in the lead up to this arse kicking 100k’r. You don’t want a massive storm front with torrential rain that forces significant course changes and you definitely don’t want to be carrying a knee injury into the race.
Pip Candrick can laugh about it now but these issues were not the most serious challenges during her first UTA 100. We sat down with her post race.
Bam! 2017 is here and 2016 is relegated to history, a ghost of the past.
I’ve been thinking a lot about 2016, reflecting on the year before the highlights dim in my memory. It was a remarkable year for many reasons, especially in sporting terms. 2016 has been called the year of the underdog, but I think that undermines or disguises what I believe is a subtle change transpiring across the globe.
