Walker recently came away with a Bronze medal at the X-TERRA Asian Pacific Trail Running Championships in the 21k Half Marathon at Callala Bay.
Leading up to the race, Nicks training was coming along well however, he fell sick on the Friday night with a migraine almost preventing him from pulling out of the race. In typical N W W form, he didn’t let anything hold him back and he decided to compete.

In the race Nick lead with a few of the front runners only to take a wrong turn in the second 11k which frustrated quite a few of the runners, however his persistence prevailed and Nick caught up quite a few places.

A big thankyou to sponsors TomTom Global, Skins AU, Chief Bar, Ice Bug and SOS Hydration.

 

TEAM BEAST WIN GOLD AT THE ASIAN PACIFIC TRAIL RUNNING CHAMPS.

imageToday I competed in the X Terra Asian Pacific Trail Running Champs with Audrey in the 21k relay and fortunately for the two of us we came away with Gold and won our entry to the World Trail Running Championships in Oahu, Hawaii. The course was set in the Jervis Bay national park which is located south of Sydney, about 40 minutes south of Woolongong. The trail was extremely slippery due to the rain the south coast has had this past week! Not even my amazing Nike Terra Kiger 2s could withstand the muddy, slippery conditions! I had several falls but still managed to run the full 10.5k in just under 40 minutes to tag Audrey. Audrey had a fantastic run too and ran especially fast at the start at the thought of the leeches which lay in the big mud puddles throughout the course. There were puddles on the 5k loop which were half a meter deep so it was best to avoid those! I found that I couldn’t control my pace because I was continuously changing pace due to the very slippery terrain. The course was easier than the Hawaiian world champs course because it wasn’t as hilly and the conditions weren’t as humid however the course today was much more slippery, bigger puddles and alot more mud! All in all team Beasts was stoked with the win and we took out the gold medal outright! We look forward to the world champs later this year! Next up Sydney 10! Thanks to Run Crew for all the hard training and to my sponsors LaceLocker, H2coco, Pure Sports Hydration +.Revive Therapeutic Massage. image image

HEPTATHLETE LANI REPRESENTS LANE 5IVE.

TRACK STAR SUPERSTAR Elana Withnall has been chosen to be the face of my first women’s LANE 5IVE Croptop collection.

Image

The collection has been inspired by metaphors for speed as well as photographs i have taken from my various trips around the world, which have been inspired me.

Image
These croptop’s empower women to be inspired whilst they workout because they feel very comfortable and the designs empower the woman to feel competitive and be the best the can be at reaching their goals.

Elana has been chosen as the Lane 5IVE cover girl because of her passion for athletics, her commitment to athletics, and her well rounded attitude as an elite athlete. She does one of the hardest track events which is the Heptathlon. She is a nationally ranked Heptathlete and has dreams and aspirations of qualifying for the Olympics.  She has to train almost 7 days a week, amongst uni and work and has to be highly motivated so she can get through her 7 events!

I am very lucky to have have this amazing sports star as my girlfriend who keeps me highly motivated and gives me strength and courage to believe in myself and also LANE 5IVE!
