You Are Ironman

@ VOL 105 ON JUL 31, 2013

An Ironman triathlon is one of the hardest endurance races in the world; a 3.8km swim followed by a 180km bike ride and a 42.2km marathon to finish. Surely, only a super-human athletes with elite endurance could possibly hope to participate in such an event? Wrong; in this presentation, Gueorgui Tcherednitchenko presents the story of a perfectly average guy's adventures in Ironman training, and lessons that he learned from it along the way.

Running the Tokyo Marathon for Home for All

@ VOL 111 ON FEB 20, 2014

PechaKucha and Klein Dytham architecture co-founder Mark Dytham has been training for over 8 months to run the 2014 Tokyo Marathon, but he's not running it just for his health. He's running an Indiegogo campaign to benefit the Home for All: an organization started by Pritzker Prize winning architect Toyo Ito set on building community centers in the disaster-ridden areas of Tohoku and Fukushima. All proceeds will go to the creation of a new community center, and the upkeep of the Home for All organization.

The World Marathon Majors

@ VOL 12 ON APR 25, 2019

"My running career started in 2011 when I accidentally caught diabetes and so my first job was to buy a pair of running shoes and sign-up for a couch to 5k."

Stephen Ferguson talks to us about the challenge of running his first marathon and that this inspired him to continue running and be awarded the World Marathon Majors, a medal won by fewer people than have climbed Mount Everest.
