Defy The Impossible
The iron distance, the ultimate test of human physical endurance. From fifteen brave souls in nineteen seventy eight, to now more than seventy thousand each year. A three point eight kilometre swim, one hundred and eighty kilometre bike and a marathon, back to back. But there are two marks which remain beyond the scope of what a human can physically do : Breaking through the barrier sub 7 hours (Men) and sub 8 hours (Women). The Sub7/Sub8 Project organized by the Pho3nix Foundation was an ambitious endeavor to push the limits of human endurance. Four elite triathletes—Blummenfelt, Joe Skipper, Kat Matthews and Nicola Spririg—set out to clock times never seen before at the Ironman distance.

Dakota Jones – Trying to leave footprints everywhere, but only footprints.
Dakota has been running trails ever since he found that trail running wasn’t nearly as competitive as road running, and that it might give him a shot at being famous.

Indeed, this unexpected appreciation of nature has resulted in him doing all kinds of complicated things in order to try to save the environment, like taking a cargo ship across the ocean and being a pain in the ass at potlucks by not eating meat. Dakota puts his emotion into action working along side partners such as Protect Our Winters (POW), utilising his ability to run fast on trails to promote sustainability and respect.
