WE DO EPIC STUFF
In the last 7 day the Thrive Team has been all about Epic achievements.
Triathlon took a back seat while we had the Buffalo Stampede Sky runner trail event as well as an epic 5 day ride raising money for Canteen Australia
Buffalo Stampede Bright Ultra 100km
Kim Broadhurst took to the start line on the inaugural Bright Ultra 100km. The course took in some of the most challenging climbs around Bright area including MT Buffalo Summit. After a little speed bump (called covid) a few weeks ago Kim stayed positive and willed herself to the start line in the best shape possible. After an Epic 18 hours out on the trails + over 5000m in elevation she crossed the finish line to add the achievement of I DO EPIC SHIT Kim has accomplished. We were so proud of Kim to stick to the task and get the job done even if the lead in wasn’t perfect. Sometimes this makes the reward of finishing even more sweet.
Buffalo Stampede Sky Marathon
Team Cladingboel toed the start line of the Sky Marathon this year but it was Nick this time in the spotlight. Nick is usually in the back seat when it comes to Epic stuff in the Team Cladingboel house hold. 3 months ago Nick came to us with a plan to get fit with the aim to do this event. Nick has turned his lifestyle upside down and basically gone from the couch to a trail marathon finisher in 3 months. His determination and commitment to doing the work has been a true credit to him. Now he gets to reap the rewards with a Buffalo Sky Marathon finisher medal hanging around his neck. Congratulations Nick can’t wait to see what will be next in you quest to do EPIC SHIT.
Metricon 5 Day ride for Canteen AUS
Kylie Jones in her lead up to Ultra Man Australia joined her fellow work colleagues at Metricon to ride to raise money for Cancer. It was a 5 day ride across Victoria and the team ended up raising over 240k for Canteen Australia. This was also a perfect block of riding for Kylie as she prepares for UM Australia next month. Congratulation to Kylie and all involved on a Epic achievement.
