Backing Women in Adventure

Evelina Neelson, Janina Kuzma & Anna Segal in New Zealand

For over ten years The North Face has operated in Australia and New Zealand, working to bring the global vision of the brand to our local communities here. From the beginning, we have been committed to serving all those who desire to explore. At our core, we believe exploration creates an indelible bond with the outdoors, inspiring people to protect our land and pass these beliefs down to the next generation.

While we are committed to serving all those who desire to explore, we know that women can be under-represented and misrepresented in exploration. We realise the importance of supporting female participation in the outdoors, at both entry and elite levels. We have aspired to do this through our athlete team, our brand team and our community outreach. We want you to meet some of the driven female athletes and adventurers we've been working with, the role models who are set to inspire the next generation of female explorers.

A chance encounter filming for The North Face 100 reignited Dave Byrne's passion for running which was rooted in track. Working the event gave him an insight into the world of trail running and the unique community built around it. Not long after he was proclaiming that he'd be running his own 100km trail race, not filming it. Hear how The North Face trail runner Dave Byrne made the switch from road to trail.
