“Setting increasingly difficult goals, putting in the work, achieving and celebrating them have given me so much focus and a motivation to look after myself. Mentally, the journey you go on over a trail race has built a lot of strength for me and has been a good lesson in perseverance and adaptation.” 

Mark Barger, Trail Running Series 2018 ambassador
