"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.

Why I Run: An Ultramarathon Runner's View
BY BRIAN MONTERO
@ VOL 25

Presenter Brian Montero runs. A lot. More than you do, ever, most likely. For him it was a process of stripping away all that does not matter and finding peace in the extreme distance running adventure he finds himself embarking on.
Ultra Running: A Love | Hate Affair
BY JONATHAN SOON
@ VOL 3
ON JUL 01, 2016
An ultramarathon is a race that goes beyond the 42km distance. Jonathan Soon says he foolishly signed up and completed his first 100km race in October 2014. His presentation focuses on the human side (i.e emotional) of the ultramarathon journey. He shares on the toughness and the intensity of preparing and running for one, and most importantly, the values and rewards beyond Personal Bests (PBs) or the distance he has run. These lessons are not restricted in the realms of ultra-running. The things he has learned have assisted his growth in his other passions as well.
