Evergreen Endurance Founding Team
Director and event organiser, Osteopath, and elite trail runner
"They say its not about the destination, but the journey that counts. As it will no doubt be for you, forming the Evergreen 228 has been one hell of an adventure, no easy ride, and certainly a memorable experience.
I love endurance sports in all their forms, the project of the preparation, the rhythm and the calm of the race the constant exploration of my limits. But Evergreen is much more than a race. We hope that our challenge takes all that is great about the sport; moving athletes to places of outstanding natural beauty and tests the body and mind in equal measure. It demands dedication and patience, and rewards those respectful to the discipline as they are to the environment.
I am very excited to show off my home, and truly passionate about striving to make a real difference in the environment we all use to train and race.
We know you will revel in the challenge to come… so, get training, and lets see you in the mountains for Evergreen 2015!"
Director and event organiser, interior design architect and lifelong endurance athlete
"Having completed over 100 triathlons, of which 18 Iron-distance and 51 half iron distance I’ve had a bit of time to contemplate what makes a great triathlon event. It’s a dream come true to use my sense of creativity as well as my knowledge of the sport to craft the dream triathlon.
I am very excited by the challenge of creating this event and it sure is a different feeling to find myself on the other side of the fence, as an organiser! I do indeed hope to have the chance to participate some day to our event as a competitor.
The other aspect of the project that excites me is the ability to give back to Nature, that I love so much and that makes all athletes, very happy. Being able to contribute to environmental preservation, promote a change of attitude, and drive forward environmental responsibility in triathlon is our leitmotiv and everyday objective. It 's really a very attractive project.
Overall I hope that our event will be as successful as we’d like so that we can establish ourselves for the long term and create a new reference in sustainability for endurance sports."
