Guzzler Profiles

We're so lucky to have some amazing people lining up for both The Guzzler and The Glass Half Full in what is set to be Brisbane's biggest ultra running event. In the lead up to race day, we'll feature some of the athlete stories here: from first timers attempting a new challenge through to experienced ultramarathoners. Front, back or middle of the pack, everyone who attempts a trail ultramarathon is an athlete and everyone has a story. So let's hear some of them!
