What if running could save a rainforest?
takayna / Tarkine region of northwestern Tasmania is home to one of the last undisturbed tracks of Gondwanan rainforest in the world, and one of the highest concentrations of Aboriginal archeology in the hemisphere. Yet this place, which remains largely as it was when dinosaurs roamed the planet, is currently at the mercy of descructive extraction industries including logging and mining.
100% of our trail running apparel is now made with recycled materials and sewn in Fair Trade Certified™ facilities, while never making compromises on durability and performance.
The takayna Ultra is a 65km ultra-marathon event held on the 13th of March in the Tarkine region. This run will traverse grass plains, amazing sands tracks along rugged wild coastlines and bush tracks. This event will raise money to support the campaign to have takayna / Tarkine protected as a World Heritage listed National Park, returned to Aboriginal ownership.
High in the San Juan Mountains above Silverton, Colorado, a pack of runners roam. Together they traverse mountain meadows and navigate mineral-stained peaks through the rugged landscape of their backyard. The Braford-Lfebvre family chose to live here in order to raise their family wild. Through hard times and the best ones, running is their tool for experiencing life together.
As a rancher growing up in the rugged northeast corner of the Navajo Nation with no electricity or running water, Eli Neztsosie learned through years of work what it meant to rely on discipline and endurance. Now he relies on these same skills as an ultrarunner—striving every day, in his words, to be better than he was the day before.
