Where
Shop 2, 165-171 Oak Road Kirrawee, NSW 2232

The Route
We try to vary it every week but it’s usually around 10km at varying paces so it’s inclusive for people of all abilities as opposed to exclusive and only for faster runners.

Meet the Team

Todd Ridge
Todd fostered a passion for footwear when he worked at The Athlete’s Foot in his hometown of Perth. He then moved across to Nike and managed the factory store in Western Australia before transferring to Sydney in 2000, just in time for the Olympics. Following his stint with Nike – which included running two factory stores and a sales rep role – Todd swapped running shoes for bike wheels when working for companies like Giant and Bianchi. It was through his work that Todd witnessed his first Ironman race where he was overheard saying: “These guys are riding 180km and then running a marathon, they’re freakin’ crazy”. This was a turning point in Todd’s life – he was so moved that he took up the challenge and has now completed nine Port Macquarie Ironman races.

1. Favourite run
The 14.5km Bondi to Coogee and back. The view is amazing – we take it for granted.
2. Best Running Moment
Running a 3:24 marathon at the 2014 Busselton Ironman and running with my best mate to help him achieve his goal of completing the Melbourne marathon.
3. What do you love about running?
Love the feeling of being fit and fast… most of the time! I also enjoy the competition.
