Never stopping: The North Face on trail

In 2007, famed ultramarathoner, Dean Karnazes, hit Australian shores to complete yet another massive run – The North Face Summit to Sydney, a 560km brute of a run. It was a feat that introduced Australia runners to The North Face not as a climbing brand, or general adventure brand (of course, it was already both in spades), but as an adventure running brand. We take a look back at how The North Face took to the trail… Time-travel back to 1966, and a…

Ultra Joe runs record on the quiet

The North Face-supported ultra runner Joe Ward has set about an endeavour to break the running record from Brisbane to Sydney (sadly not on trail, but a big feat nonetheless! Ed.). He will run 1000km over 12 days, all in complete silence to raise awareness for men’s mental health.

Shoe review: The North Face Ultra Cardiac

This review first appeared in Edition #17 of Trail Run Mag. available for free download (along with all editions) HERE.

Dan Lewis wraps up The North Face 100 for 2015, an event that just keeps getting bigger and more dramatic, from the emotional finish by The North face athlete, Dylan Bowman, to the 27+ hour crossing of the 100km line by 73-year-old Alf Johnston. There was a feel-good start and a ferocious finish to the eighth edition of trail running epic The North Face 100 in the Blue Mountains today. The 100km race and its sister 50km event attracted more than 2000 entrants, but it…

The North Face 100: Inspirations

More than 2000 runners line up tomorrow for The North Face 100 , representing 35 countries and all walks of life. Some are elites – you’ll read a lot about them across the mediascape to be sure, internationals and local go-fasts rocking the single track in unbelievable min/km pace. Worthy of accolades and attention, their feats are admirable, absolutely. That said, I still prefer the stories that echo back from the past of the pointy enders quipping that while their 10-ish hour…
