David Byrne

David has been running since he was in his early teens. He represented Australia at the World Junior Championships and World Cross Country. This has been his passion for over two decades.

Highlights through this period range from winning the Australian junior title over 1,500m in 2000 and placing 2nd in the open national 1,500m in 2003, to coming third in the Zatopek 10,000m in 2005 and most recently winning the 6ft Track Marathon and placing 2nd at the Tarawera Ultra Marathon.

While his background is in track racing, a newfound love of trails has seen him return to the sport in a big way after giving it up back in 2006. His focus now is on the long runs and sharing his love of running with others.
